Higher education institutions are under pressure as a result of new cybersecurity compliance regulations. With an increasing amount of sensitive data being stored on digital platforms, it is critical to ensure that cybersecurity safeguards are in place to protect the information.
CISA is proposing a new rule that would require covered entities to report cyber incidents and ransomware payments to CISA within hours.
This is in response to the increasing frequency and severity of cyberattacks and ransomware incidents, which can have serious consequences for critical infrastructure and educational institutions.
When I was an engineering student, I attended a state government university where, in our seventh semester, a Communication Engineering paper was leaked online via email and the college's official account was briefly compromised. This security breach caused major concern for the college, students, and authorities, challenging a student's future and trust in the university.
Consequences, however, force the university to update its website and Technical Credentials. We administered exams according to a different format, which caused a commotion at the time. A few managers and authorities in the test department also changed.
Cyber threats can have significant impacts on individuals, organizations, and even society as a whole.
