Alumni, students and staff expect universities to protect their personal data
Due to the vast amount of data and type of data educational institutions are storing, they are being attacked on a regular basis. According to Baker Tilley, breaches in the education sector are up 73%.
Educational institutions tend to have open network infrastructures with multiple points of access. While this type of architecture provides for a better user experience, it also opens the door for hackers. With the number of users accessing the system via various channels, vulnerabilities are infinite. Thus, university IT teams must ensure they are protecting each access point with the correct cyber offense tools like BlindHash Cyber. By implementing BlindHash password database protection, the threat of offline attacks is eliminated. BlindHash Cyber's patented technology is scalable, affordable and easy to implement.
