Creating Seamless and Secure Identity Experiences in Online Education
Everything you need to know about identity management in education
According to UNESCO, in mid-April 2020, around 1.5 billion children and youth in 195 countries were affected by school closing down abruptly. In the race to take education online, most institutions paid little attention to cyber-related risks in the initial days of the transition.
However, it quickly became apparent that proper cybersecurity measures must be implemented—when the online education industry made up 61% of the 7.7 million malware encounters reported by institutions in June 2020.
Online learning is a complex process that involves gathering a lot of information, including sensitive data like the private information of students and teachers and any authorized participants. Online security is therefore not just about protecting coursework and projects, but the very identities of people.
Cyber threats vary from harmless pranksters seeking nothing more than disturbing a class or encountering potentially dangerous malware and phishing attacks.
