Building Cyber Resiliency in Institutions of Higher Education (IHE)

Institutions of Higher Education (IHE) face unique cybersecurity challenges as much as those of commercial and government sectors.

According to Check Point Research, IHE was the top target for cyberattacks in 2021, with an average of 1,605 cyberattacks per institution per week, which is a 75% increase from 2020. In comparison, other industries globally saw an increase of 50%.

Proactively protecting assets and data against cyberattacks can help IHE’s focus on the many cross-cutting challenges of the modern higher ed environment including, but not limited to: sustaining student satisfaction and enrollment, maintaining accreditation, funding demands, compliance regulations, and changing learning and working modalities.
