Services in Cybersecurity and Cyber Investigations for Schools
What’s At Risk
Schools and universities have a unique set of requirements related to protection of their student data and infrastructure. This data includes names, addresses, social security numbers, birth dates, and even parents’ personal and financial information. Some schools do not realize that they also have electronic protected health information (ePHI) that needs to be protected from cyber threats. With strong services in cybersecurity and cyber investigations, schools can feel safe and protected.
Your IT vendor can help with the basic network set-up, but firewalls and anti-virus software are not enough to keep your data safe from cybercriminals or fully protected with data breach security.
How an Attack Happens
You want to ensure your network is secure, your students are safe, and that if you are providing them with a laptop or tablet to take home, it is secure as well and any threats are attended by the right cyber investigations and data breach security. Phishing, social engineering, school email compromise, ransomware attacks, and the security of various remote tools being used are all threats to the security of a school’s network. Without services in cybersecurity and cyber investigations, you run the risk of your students’ and parents’ data being compromised. You may even have to shut down your school while you recover your data and network. Not only is this bad for your school, it is also harmful to your students, parents, and reputation.
You can’t rely only on your IT vendor to keep you safe. Make sure they are working with a dedicated cybersecurity company to provide the highest level of protection for your school.
