The Data Challenge:
Our team at innerActiv made it a point to consider a broad spectrum of industries when designing our full data security suite, carefully taking into account each one’s unique security needs and what potential threats their daily operations could face.
Much like organizations within the private sector, educational institutions face their own specific set of challenges when it comes to information security. While those institutions are encouraged to keep an environment of openness when it comes to information, they are also faced with housing a myriad of data types and with protecting the personal data and well-being of their employees, their student body, and the families of those students. Complicating the issue is the fact that most organizations need to tackle this challenge with limited budget and IT resources available. This in itself can create a dangerous compromise when it comes to maintaining the integrity of the educational body’s crucial data.
The higher education industry accounts for 17% of all reported data breaches, second only to the medical industry’s 27%!
