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. For Hal Stone, Clemson's chief information security officer, the results were an improvement from the past but not good enough. Even one compromised user could be a problem, Stone said. 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. The university has about 5,400 employees, and nearly 25,000 students work or attend school there, according to the university's 2018 fact book.
