Securing sensitive data tops the agenda of educational institutions, with the majority of them planning to invest in protection against data breach and fraud.
Irvine, CA, September 5, 2017
Netwrix Corporation, provider of a visibility platform for data security and risk mitigation in hybrid environments, today announced the release of its 2017 IT Risks in Education infographics. The findings presented in the infographics are based on feedback provided by IT specialists working for educational institutions around the globe as part of the recent IT Risks Survey conducted by Netwrix.
The 2017 IT Risks in Education infographics provide a deep look into IT security practices, pains, successful experiences and plans in the education vertical. The IT risks are divided into three areas: security, compliance and operations.
The survey’s key findings for the education vertical are:
"Typically, IT departments in the educational sector are understaffed and underbudgeted. Nevertheless, they have to support hundreds of users and meet tightening requirements for data protection. To successfully secure sensitive data and maximize system uptime, educational institutions need to gain visibility into user activity across the entire IT infrastructure. Knowing who does what in which system, who has which permissions, who accesses what files and so on will cost-efficiently facilitate security, compliance and operational tasks, as well as simplify dealing with IT incidents," said Michael Fimin, CEO and co-founder of Netwrix.
