CLEMSON AND OTHER UNIVERSITIES WORK TO IMPROVE CYBERSECURITY
CLEMSON - This spring, a batch of tests were sent to 100 Clemson University faculty and staff emails in an attempt to access private and personal information. A fourth of the emails were blocked by the security system, and several additional recipients alerted the university to the phishing attempt. But more than a dozen users provided their credentials in response to the email, and malware was installed on six of the university's computers.

If a person with access to important data is hacked, it could cause a disruption of business and classes at the university. Clemson has to protect data for more than 30,000 people each day.
