In October of 2010, higher education saw some of its largest data security breaches ever, as the Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and other personal information for about 760,000 current and former Ohio State University students were accessed by unauthorized network users. There was also a breach of security at the University of Hawaii (UH) that accidently posted the private information of over 40,000 students online.
Even before these events made headlines, many colleges and universities already were re-examining their network security practices. But securing school networks is a huge challenge. All sorts of devices—including laptops, smart phones, netbooks, and tablets—request access to a campus network from many different locations.
From granting access to staff and students using multiple devices, to making sure that all necessary applications receive permission to run on a network, school IT staff have a lot to consider as they build secure campus networks that are easy to maintain.
