Data breaches in higher education

Data breaches in higher education | Personal [e-]Learning Environments | Scoop.it

TeamSHATTER reports on data breaches in the higher education vertical throughout the United States.

The past year has seen a substantial uptick in the amount of total records breached. In 2012, there was a dramatic increase in the total number of reported records affected (1,977,412), but a relatively low amount of institutions (51) that reported breaches.

 

In fact, the past year has seen the most reported compromised records in the higher education sector since 2006, based on data since tracking began in 2005.
