Zero-Trust cybersecurity is vital to protecting students and staff - on and off campus. Out of 17 major industries, education ranks last in cybersecurity preparedness.4 Educational institutions are entrusted to secure vulnerable data, including personal information about staff and students at every level, from K-12 to higher education.

With the rise of remote learning, the number of cyber attacks on educational institutions also rose. This exposure comes from students and faculty connecting to databases and applications via unsecured networks. Providing cybersecurity solutions to every student, teacher, staff, and parent is essential in order to protect institutions from cyber attacks.

Protecting Educational Institutions from Cyber Threats

While the education industry is vulnerable to every type of cyber threat, there are two that occur most often.

  • Phishing

    Phishing is a sophisticated social engineering attack meant to entice victims into voluntarily revealing sensitive information.

    The challenge with phishing is that it can be difficult to spot as methods become more sophisticated.

  • Ransomware

    Ransomware attacks lock users out of their systems until a ransom is paid. This ransom payment is often requested in cryptocurrency to maintain anonymity.

Keeper’s Enterprise Password Management (EPM) solution gives IT administrators complete visibility into how employees, students and parents use school-related login credentials – enabling them to monitor password hygiene across the entire network. Policies such as strong passwords, 2FA and additional security protocols can be easily enforced through the admin console.

Educational institutions choose Keeper for flexible, scalable integrations with any tech stack and environment and to fill security gaps in existing solutions such as SSO.
