While retailers and healthcare organizations have dominated much of the data breach media attention in recent weeks, a new study finds that the nation’s colleges and universities are at even greater risk for cyberattacks.
In an email to FierceCIO, the security firm BitSight Technologies shared highlights of its new research report, “Powerhouses and Benchwarmers: Assessing Cyber Security Performance of Collegiate Athletic Conferences.” The report finds that as a sector, the nation’s top schools are at even greater risk for security breaches than are the retail and healthcare industries.
Read more on FierceCIO. You can request the full BitSight report here. Analyzing/comparing the data by athletic conferences doesn’t thrill me, but they do provide some useful information in the report.
