Embracing Security Operations in the Educational Sector

December 22, 2022

Embracing Security Operations in the Educational Sector
Nearly every part of the educational sector has fallen victim to a cyberattack, from elementary schools to universities. Securing education is no longer a “nice to have” but a “must do” and is a growing concern among the global educational community.

Creating and maintaining effective information security and cybersecurity operations in education comes down to people, processes, and tools. It’s crucial for IT and security leaders across the entire spectrum of educational institutions to find the right balance between the three. While there are success stories of achieving that balance, there’s always more to do to identify, understand, and mitigate cybersecurity risks to these organizations. Establishing and improving existing cybersecurity operations must become a priority.
