Education Cybersecurity Solutions

Our nation’s schools and higher learning institutions are not immune to cyber-attacks.

Many of our schools are already stretched thin and do not have the funds to invest in – or the staff to support – a robust cybersecurity program. With Sage as a partner, you have direct access to knowledgeable subject matter experts who can help your school system create and sustain a program that realistically and cost-effectively protects your organization.

Average cost of data breach per stolen record: $246 - The Ponemon Institute 2016 Cost of a Data Breach Study

According to Verizon’s 2016 Data Breach Investigations Report, the education sector ranked sixth overall for the US in total number of reported “security incidents” last year.  There has been a renewed focus on information security following reports of at least six major universities, including Harvard, falling victim to cyberattacks since 2015.

Hackers target school systems, especially colleges and universities, because they are a treasure trove of information.  It’s not just Social Security numbers they are after – education databases also contain medical records, financial data, and even intellectual property, including innovative research being performed at many of our higher education facilities.

Cybersecurity is a constant challenge for the education sector, and budget constraints are often a limiting factor on improvements to an institution’s security posture.  Many of our schools are already stretched thin and do not have the funds to invest in – or the staff to support – a robust cybersecurity program.  With Sage as a partner, you have direct access to knowledgeable subject matter experts who can help your school system create and sustain a program that realistically and cost-effectively protects your organization while maintaining a balance of productivity and operational effectiveness.

Assess Your Cybersecurity Resilience

To better address cybersecurity risk across all critical infrastructure sectors, Presidential Executive Order 13636, called for the development of a voluntary risk-based Cybersecurity Framework, which was developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).

The NIST Cybersecurity Resilience Assessment is complex and can be a daunting, resource-intensive task. Sage’s collaborative approach ensures that the assessment process is effective, educational, and provides actionable outcomes.

Increase Cybersecurity Awareness

Your employees – and students – are your first line of defense – and the weakest link – when it comes to cybersecurity. According to a report from PhishMe, 91% of cyberattacks start with a phishing email, where a person is duped into clicking a link to a nefarious site.

Sage’s targeted training sessions can help you start building a culture of cybersecurity and develop a workforce that understands the fundamentals of cybersecurity, so that they can make smart everyday choices to defend against attacks.
