There are many potential threat actors when it comes to breaches in Education: students, faculty, applicants, administrative staff, alumni, collaborators, research and project participants and vendors who access the relatively open academic environment.
However, students are a group of particular interest. Young, energetic and perhaps attending a course in ethical hacking during the day, they might be tempted to test newly acquired skills during the night.
It may be due to boredom or curiosity, that students end up as the catalyst of a breach. Whether intentional or accidental, universities need protective measures in place to face the insider threat.
