The proliferation of personal mobile devices and homegrown hackers on today’s campuses—not to mention the open, collaborative nature of college environments in general—make cybersecurity particularly challenging in higher education. It’s no wonder cybercriminals consider colleges and universities easy targets.

That’s why developing cybersecurity policies in colleges and universities is critical in today’s increased threat environment, and why everyone—administrators, faculty members and students alike—need to get involved.
As your higher education customers’ trusted advisor, you can help by offering them a checklist of do’s and don’ts to help them ensure a safer IT environment.
