The education sector has long faced challenges such as a lack of funding and resources. A weak cybersecurity infrastructure puts student data at risk. A structured, systematic, and proactive cybersecurity approach is necessary to protect against financial loss, prevent disruption, and protect students from harm. We’ll help you understand and remediate the vulnerabilities you have - today and in the future.
We cover every asset in every environment - public, local, cloud, IoT, containers as well as OT and SCADA.
Find vulnerabilities before any cybercriminal does and ensure your operations run without any disruption.
Meet existing laws, regulations, and compliance requirements, like GDPR and NIS (Network and Information Security).
Since the start of Holm Security in the Netherlands, a lot of effort has been invested in the Educational sector. The protection of personal data is one of the most important challenges of schools and universities and cybersecurity tools help in organizing and monitoring the assets that process it. One of the first proud customers of Holm Security in this sector is CITAVERDE College, secondary education in the southern parts of the Netherlands.
The protection of personal data is one of the most important challenges facing schools and universities. In recent years, the educational sector has become more susceptible to cyberattacks and a data breach can lead to huge fines and endanger the school’s reputation. A weak cybersecurity infrastructure puts students at risk.
Education, like other industry sectors, is going down the digital transformation pathway, and with connectivity comes cybersecurity threats. It is critical to evaluate the risks and understand just how your institution might be vulnerable to unauthorized access. Here are a few best practices to protect your organization from disruptive and costly intrusions.
Identify and understand the threat landscape, including external and internal cyber threats.
Assess the risk exposure by determining the likelihood and impact of vulnerability exploitation by any external or internal actor.
Continuously and carefully adjust your risk posture to align with the changing cyber environment.
Reduce the likelihood and the impact of any potential exploitation by implementing detection measures.
Establish a contingency plan to mitigate any potential cyber risk.
Use contingency plan to respond and recover from any cyber incidents to ensure operational stability.
DDoS attacks are a common type of attack on all educational institutions. They're often performed to cause widespread disruption to the network, negatively impacting productivity. It's a relatively easy attack for an amateur cyber-criminal, especially if the target network is poorly protected.
Data theft affects all levels that handle student and staff data, including sensitive details like names and addresses. This type of information can be valuable whether the hacker plans to sell the information to a third party or use it as a bargaining tool and extort money.
Another motive for hackers attacking education institutions is for financial gain, especially for universities handling large numbers of student fees. Without proper protection, this presents a weak spot for cybercriminals to intercept.
Take control over the security of your systems and networks. We support all parts of your infrastructure – public, local, cloud, IoT, containers as well as OT and SCADA.
