    Higher Education Security Challenges

Colleges and universities store a trove of sensitive information, including student records, coursework and research. While hackers probably don't take summer vacations, college networks do see a dramatic rise in attacks during the academic year that runs from September to May. Given this increase in activity and recent data breaches, it is imperative that schools readdress their strategies for protecting this data in the coming school year.

WinMagic Data Security recently published "Protecting Student and Institutional Privacy," an eBook outlining the many security challenges education institutions are facing today and how data encryption can solve many of these data-protection challenges. In this slideshow, Mark Hickman, COO at WinMagic Data Security, has identified the top five data-protection challenges educational institutions will face in the 2014-15 school year.
