Why Cyber Security Matters in Education.

Educational institutions have regularly been at risk for cyber attacks. Research documents, student data, and other sensitive information are often held on large, open networks which makes it easier for cyber criminals to compromise the data’s security and take information without being noticed. Depending on the nature of the event, attacks can lead to widespread operational, reputational, or financial disruptions which can lead to loss of confidence in students, potential students, and staff.

Attacks often are not able to be detected in time or stopped due to lack of security staff and outdated hardware/software. At WSA, we look at every possible access point for an attack and address them so your research, your personal data, and your peace of mind can be preserved.
