Understanding and improving cybersecurity in postsecondary education: Editorial


Postsecondary campuses host a myriad of groups, run a variety of types of events, and are stewards of private or classified data, which makes cybersecurity an essential but complicated consideration for the sector. Lois Brooks (University of Wisconsin-Madison) discusses the unique considerations of cybersecurity at a higher education institution, before turning to the work of improving cybersecurity on campus. Brooks encourages leaders to learn whether cybersecurity training is required at their institution and if it is focused on the right topics, evaluate the security and functionality of their postsecondary’s systems, and to understand where the key security vulnerabilities are on campus.
