Cybersecurity Solutions

It’s simply not enough to wait until a Cybersecurity breach occurs.

Keeping student and faculty data safe is a top concern on campuses today. However, cybersecurity is so complex, challenging, and fast-moving that most schools can’t do it independently. Schools are more vulnerable to cyber-attacks and most cyber-insurance companies now require specific threat detections to be in place. Let us help you choose the right cybersecurity solution for your school.

Increased Cyberattacks on Schools

Schools have become prime targets for cyberattacks, with a significant increase in incidents. In 2020, the number of publicly disclosed cybersecurity incidents affecting K-12 school systems rose by 18% compared to the previous year. GAO Report on Cyberattacks on K-12 Schools Ransomware Attacks

Ransomware Attacks

The education sector reported the highest rates of ransomware attacks among all industries surveyed. In 2023, 80% of lower education and 79% of higher education institutions reported being hit by ransomware, up from 56% and 64% respectively in 2022.

Data Breaches

Schools handle vast amounts of sensitive data, making them attractive targets for data breaches. Incidents have led to the disclosure of personal information such as students’ grades, social security numbers, and even bullying reports, posing significant risks to students’ privacy and safety. GAO Report on Cyberattacks on K-12 Schools Phishing Attacks

Phishing Attacks

Phishing remains one of the most common types of cyberattacks on schools. Nearly one-third of the most significant ransomware attacks in lower education began with malicious emails or phishing, highlighting the sector’s vulnerability to email-based threats.

Need for Cybersecurity Training

A large number of educational institutions recognize the necessity for enhanced cybersecurity training. According to the K12 Security Information eXchange, schools are urged to improve their cybersecurity defenses through better training and preparation against potential cyber threats.

Disaster Recovery

Earthquakes, tsunamis and tornadoes, to computer viruses threaten to shut down entire networks, or delete all the data on a server. None of us want to think of these disasters, when you run a school, it is part of the job to make sure your campus is prepared for the worst – the loss of critical data and applications. Data backup, continuity, and disaster recovery mitigate the risks associated with potential loss of data. School systems (laptops, desktops, and servers) and the applications and data, are critical to  school operation. The importance of ensuring continued operation of systems, or rapid recovery has increased dramatically.

“Plan for the worst, and hope for the best”

is a good place to start, but is certainly not sufficient when talking about business-critical data
$41.9 billion total cost of disaster related damages in 2009
$8 billion total cost of viruses per year
7% of IT budget to allocate to disaster recovery
335 natural disaters in 2009

From strategy to support, IT managers are expected to do it all. Often they are the unsung heroes who fix problems, install software and use every means available to keep the servers up and running. Nowhere is this truer than on school campuses where aging infrastructures, dwindling budgets and the exploding use of mobile technology are the norm. Virtualization is proving to be the answer for many schools and colleges who operate with small IT staffs and limited budgets.

Consider these statistics:

60% of IT directors say cloud computing a priority
68% of all workloads now run on virtual machines
21% annual savings

Flexibility and scalability make virtualization very attractive, not to mention the cost savings for everything from hardware to electricity.
