Security for Education Organizations

Cyber Security Solutions for Educational Institutions Throughout Tampa Bay

Universities, schools and learning centers of most varieties have long encouraged the open sharing of information. This harmonious spirit has empowered countless students and teachers to obtain access to helpful educational resources. Unfortunately, collaborative learning in such a manner poses some risk. The free sharing of information exposes educational institutions to cyber attacks. From elementary schools on up to high schools and universities, Tampa Bay schools of all varieties can fall prey to a malicious cyber hacker. In fact, the open network access available on college campuses provides wrongdoers with the opportunity to easily execute digital attacks on other institutions.

Most Tampa Bay Educational Institutions are Woefully Unprepared for a Digital Attack

The vast majority of learning facilities do not dedicate ample resources for cyber security measures. Most have few digital safeguards in place. Consider the fact that college campuses are hotbeds of digital activity. Students, teachers and visitors bring their laptops, tablets and smart phones to campus. If these devices carry malware, viruses and other harmful applications, they have the potential to spread through the network, onto other digital devices and so on.
