The Education sector is at an increased risk of information security attacks according to research, with 35% of all attacks occurs in the higher education sector. The reason is many higher education institutions hold a vast amount of information on open networks that range from payment information to names and everything else in between.
The key problem is the fact, that many institutions do not have appropriate security in place. Mobile devices and BYOD for staff and faculty, as well as, student-owned personal devices use the networks, highlighting the need for strict policies and enhanced management of these policies to prevent the network from becoming a mass of insecure data. There have to be improved security processes implemented alongside the policies, as old processes can inhibit the response time for the current security policies to take effect.
Colleges, universities and those in the higher education industry are undergoing an enormous transformation with the adoption of new communication, collaboration, and training tools. With Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC), Bring Your Own Device (BYOD), and VR Classrooms gaining momentum, leveraging information technology (IT) has become more a necessity than a distinguishing feature.
Students today demand always-on, always-connected, and personalized learning experiences, and institutions need strategies and platforms that enable them to create enriching learning experiences. Apart from addressing the technology requirements for new learning modes, improving digital fluency, and creating quantifiable learning experiences, organizations in the sector often struggle with tactical as well as strategic issues, such as data management, data security, and IT cost optimization.
