Why Read This Report

Overall spending on cybersecurity technologies and staffing is at an all-time high, but statistics show that the average size of data breaches continue to rise, and a large percentage of hacking-related breaches leverage either stolen and/or weak passwords. These metrics show a clear misalignment between cybersecurity investments and outcomes. Higher education institutions are particularly rich targets for data breaches. This guidebook reviews the research and surveys the market to draw conclusions and make recommendations about how an IAM strategy should evolve to protect the institution’s business risks and goals.
