The Importance of Cybersecurity Investment in Higher Education

Institutions of higher education will continue to be targets for cyber criminals, according to a Massachusetts class action claim. The lawsuit, Jackson v. Suffolk was filed on January 4th, 2023, in the district Court for the District of Massachusetts, because of a data breach that affected thousands of current and former Suffolk students. The suit further explains that the personally identifiable information (PII) included Social Security numbers, driver’s license numbers, financial account information, and so on.

Unfortunately, Suffolk’s data breach is no exception to these cyber attacks. Colleges and universities have massive amounts of information often stored in just one location that can be susceptible to cyber criminals. Recognizing this, the FBI continues to issue warnings to institutions of higher education that ransomware attacks are very likely, and to watch out for them.
