Cyber security breaches can leave a lasting impact on the education sector.

All this confidential data stored digitally can be hacked by hackers.

School teachers, employees and students constantly rely on their websites and online learning tools, and these are frequently facing security threats. Admissions today are also taking place online giving miscreants another pathway to enter educational systems and gain access to critical data. Meanwhile, Denial-of-service (DoS) attacks too are gaining popularity in the education sector.
