A new survey from CDW-G suggests college IT departments are missing the mark when it comes to educating their student bodies about cybersecurity threats, reports University Business. Only 26% of college students said they were aware of cybersecurity breaches at their institutions, even though the the vast majority IT professionals said they reported such incidents campus wide. Cybersecurity training is often mandatory for faculty and staff, but most institutions lack the resources and infrastructure to provide the same to students, making it difficult to educate students not just to protect the school’s systems, but to safeguard their own off-campus affairs as well.
