Balancing Cybersecurity And Academic Freedom Is A Challenge On Campus
from The Conversation
Cybersecurity concerns crop up everywhere you turn lately — around the election, email services, retailers. And academic institutions haven't been immune to security breaches either. According to a recent report by VMware, almost all universities (87 percent) in the United Kingdom have been the victims of cyber crime. In general, from 2006 to 2013, 550 universities suffered data breaches. When higher ed breaches occur, attackers typically steal student information, intellectual property or research data. Among the criminals behind these attacks are nation-states and organized crime groups motivated by the economic gain.
