Information Security update—Data classification
You probably have heard that a number of universities have experienced a data breach of some sort. The data breach affected many layers at those universities, with the University of Central Florida (UCF) being the latest. The total number of compromised accounts at UCF included 63,000 staff, faculty, and students. In response to the increased cybersecurity threats, Saint Leo University will implement improved security measures in the coming weeks. The first phase of this project will be data classification. This will be followed by an upgraded intrusion detection and prevention system.
Data classification allows the university to track sensitive data, allowing more accurate monitoring of our data. The intrusion detection and prevention system will give us greater ability to monitor the network and respond to attacks, viruses, and malware. University Technology Services will provide more information, including timelines and training schedules, in the future.
