Remote Rules – Identity Risks in Education
As the education sector moves online, the various stakeholders involved (educators, students, administrators, alumni) are grappling with vulnerabilities the legacy infrastructure has not yet fully tackled. Delivering critical content and experiences via remote learning is top of mind, but there are unique identity risks and potential breaches that also need to be addressed to ensure safety for all stakeholders. Phishing attacks and use of stolen credentials accounted for 51% of breaches in educational services, according to Verizon’s 2020 Data Breach Investigations Report. Given the amount of susceptible data, what can be done and who is responsible to educate these institutions and its users on the risks? What specific challenges is the education sector facing when creating systems that service these groups?

What is the Cost? Pupil Privacy vs. School Security
Increases in security are often seen as a loss of privacy—but does this cost have to be the trade-off? E-learning companies retain rights to much of what they gather from students’ computers and bedrooms. ProctorU’s privacy policy, for example, shows the company shares student data with proctors and schools, ranging from home addresses to medical records to biometric data. There are trade-offs and unfortunate aspects of the migration online that are unavoidable, but is surveillance and sacrifice of privacy for education expediency one of them?

Making the Grade: Technology’s Role in Addressing Education’s Identity Needs
Could the education sector be the latest petri-dish for innovation? Before COVID-19’s rise, digital identity in education had limited or inconsistent adoption within schools’ frameworks. Now that the required transformation of this sector has arrived, what solutions have shown early success? Beyond cybersecurity improvements for schools, what omnichannel, physical-digital scenarios need to be solved, especially on campuses, to keep students and educators safe? What access or resources must be provided to ensure an inclusive solution?
