Without any doubt, cybersecurity today is a global problem that influences majority of our lives in all possible ways.
One of the most horrifying truth is that cybercrime is threatening in all fields and to top this up, education industry has been hit by cybercrime or cybersecurity issues to a large extent. If one looks at the business content, education is one of the largest and now one of the most vulnerable to cyber threats.
It is not a secret that breaches are an expensive affair and can lead to major damage in data, branding, image, capability, infrastructure, etc. This brings educational institution, schools, colleges, and other facilities to take precautions, measures of safety and cyber security awareness program more seriously than ever before. With students, teachers going online more than ever, from taking online test to online sharing, it brings many reasons for protection.
Be a change to bring the change says Emily Jha, Co-Founder and COO Netsach.
Education industry needs to bring change in the field of education:
1. Keeping up with the change in technology
Over last few years, schools are gradually getting more and more modern by adopting new technologies, teaching methods, online platform, rapidly changing technology which is growing complex and bigger every single day. Our education system needs to be kept at par with the technology and security while keeping core agenda of education at the bottom line.

Though with the increase in technology and adaptability our education system is gradually adopting the new trend. However, one of the important factor of keeping all their teachers, faculty informed with cyber security hygiene plays a very vital role.

Proper encryption, access control
We believe that though schools and colleges are doing their best to ensure the security of their website, data, infrastructure we strongly recommend ensuring proper implementation of encryption, privacy control, access control, authentication factor and access management in place. This will help largely from any possible threats and will maintain cyber hygiene.
Hiring new cyber security professional
Sometimes implementing cyber security hygiene can be tedious and time taking and hence we recommend hiring cyber security professionals to ease out entire implementation job if required.
Spreading Cyber Security Awareness Among Students
Above all we also believe that students are our future and with the exposure of technology and internet they fall prey for it by loosing their identity or even sharing details on public platform which they should not be and hence making students aware on this platform is particularly important and crucial factor.
