Higher education institutions are amazingly complex organizations and their scope for compliance regulations is wider than other industries. While virtually every industry faces significant cybersecurity challenges, higher education is particularly vulnerable.
Higher education’s degree of openness and transparency has historically placed a focus on making sure that faculty, students, the public, and donors can connect easily to resources – including payments across possibly numerous networks. This has made college and university networks an open and inviting target.

Getting business administrators and IT align priorities and resources however, is sometimes a different story.
