Cyber Security – Challenge
In past few years, school systems were attacked more times than any other industry; more than health care, social media, and retail. Despite this, other industries all received more national media coverage than the school systems.
From 2005 to 2019, there were nearly 1,100 breaches at schools systems throughout the United States that potentially disclosed more than 25 million personal records of faculty, students, and donors.
These staggering numbers only represent a fraction of the picture. The more than 800 breaches are just the ones formally reported. There are likely hundreds more that have gone unreported, or worse, undetected.
Cyber Security – Response
Empire Consultants Security-as-a-Service (SECaaS), cloud-based platform is designed to provide Next Generation Endpoint Detection and Response to protect students, faculty and staff from cyber attacks. It is an ‘all-in-one’ solution for security, patch management, backup and data recovery and disaster recovery. Our cloud-based platform will not only modernize a school’s IT infrastructure but protect it as well.
More and more schools are issuing laptops equipped such as Chrome laptops, Windows Surface Pro, or Apple tablets. For many hackers, these devices are a treasure trove of valuable and ransomable information. Schools and universities house extensive personal data on faculty, students, and alumni, the type of information cybercriminals dream of capturing.
These devices need to be properly secured and protected as well as managed in terms of patch management. Our SECaaS is a turn-key solution to protect these IT investments. We work hard to project and secure technology investments that promote the use of IT in the areas of virtualization, cyber security, as well as eliminate service outages, reduce costs, and create amazing student and faculty experiences.
