As malware, cybercrime, and hacking evolves they present a greater threat to private and public educational institutions, which are often underprepared to handle cyber attacks. Further, educational institutions and their computer networks are comprised of a high number of devices with relatively low requirements for security and protection. Application and device vulnerabilities, unsafe network practices (including file/data sharing) and inexperienced staff/students make these large networks prime targets for cyber threats and hackers.
