Cybersecurity: A Complex Assignment for Education

Your educational organization is a prime target for cybercriminals. You hold a veritable treasure trove of “attractive” sensitive data that includes social security numbers and other personal information, student health records, and financial information. Plus, the cyclical academic year brings a unique ebb and flow of a vast number of endpoints.

Still, your team may be challenged with defending student and faculty data. In addition to identifying and managing the right hardware, software, and configurations for your cybersecurity program, you also must meet rigorous cyber compliance priorities – including PCI DSS, GLBA, and even HIPAA. Educational institutions must also take into consideration the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) guidelines and adherence to specific state laws like Texas’ Tac202 requiring colleges to do security monitoring.

SilverSky can help educational institutions of all sizes. Our comprehensive managed security services offer a simple, affordable way for educational organizations to fill the gaps in their cybersecurity to reduce risk and maintain critical compliance.
