The Top 5 Security Challenges of Higher Education

Universities are built to share knowledge and information, an objective that often runs counter to IT security principles. In spite of that, security leaders are tasked by trustees and school executives with protecting sensitive data not just in administrative systems, but also in those that support classroom learning and cutting edge research.

This informative white paper discusses how in addition to the same IT security challenges as commercial enterprises, universities face a number of difficulties that are entirely unique to higher education. Read on to learn more about the top 5 IT security challenges within higher education, including:

  • A culture of sharing
  • The hostile dorm environment
  • Broad compliance demands
  • And two more

  • Security Considerations When Undergoing a Network Refresh

    Corporate networks are under a constant state of siege - not just from threats but from the pressure of supporting the ever-growing number of clients, devices and platforms that have resulted from the BYOD phenomena. Network demands will only increase as we move to the "internet of things" adding sensors and instrumentation of all types to the list of security burdens.

    As a result, many organizations are planning network refreshes to ensure bandwidth for current and future needs will be available. But new networking protocols and hardware can bring new attacksurfaces for both internal and external threats, and organizations must consider new security measures, from intrusion prevention systems to next-generation firewalls to ensure network upgrades don't leave them at higher risk.

    This SlashGuide looks at the most important factors IT should keep top of mind as they plan their move to 802.11ac, higher bandwidth wired infrastructure or upgrading to switches and routers with enhanced capabilities.

  • Security Considerations When Undergoing a Network Refresh

    New technologies such as mobile devices, software-defined networks, and even 802.11ac are redefining network security needs. As the boundaries of computing activity and networking expand, the management complexity is increasing, making effective security more important, but more difficult. This informative paper discusses crucial considerations you need to keep in mind when undergoing a network refresh, outlining the impact that emerging technologies will have on network and security management, along with what you can do to ensure that your network is high-performance and secure.
