Universities have unique challenges - #72

This is an interesting article that explains why Universities and Colleges are hardest hit by security breaches, identity theft and viruses/malicious code. I have been involved with some security assessments with educational institutions and there is no doubt they have a tougher time than traditional corporates. The institutions I was involved with actually had fairly robust technogy deployments but lacked in the Risk Management and Process area - a domain where the corporates normally fare better.

From this article, it would appear as if the US institutions are having a particularly rough time in todays security wild west. The article sums up the unique challenges for educational institutions quite nicely.
