The security challenges and threats are similar for any education organisation. Learning and the exchange of ideas require information to be available to staff, students and the public. At the same time, ensuring that information is only accessible to the right people is crucial.
In education, the tools of modern technology make it faster and easier to access and share information than ever before. Today’s students are unlikely to ever trudge to the library in the rain to find that the books they need aren’t available. What they might find, however, is that they are unable to access their institution’s network, as shown by the major disruption caused by a number of distributed denial of service attacks suffered by education networks. This white paper looks at the security challenges facing education institutions and how they can go about tackling them.
