Re: Universities Have More Intellectual Property than Industry
Scale of roll out (50,000+ users), cost, and resistance to change (user complexity) all present difficult challeges. That is true, two-factor is not something cheap to implement.

Re: Universities Have More Intellectual Property than Industry
Technologies such as multi-factor authentication present defensive strategies as far as phishing is concerned. Two-factor is really good to secure logins, there are other issues once students are in the system.

Re: Universities Have More Intellectual Property than Industry
We conssitently discover compromised accounts daily. That is the main problem with the students, some of the may be hacker by themselves.

Security to a large degree is inversely porportional to ease of use I agree with this, more security means more difficulties to get things done.

The challenge to a large degree is how sharp the spear phishing point is Students are target all the times and those put university systems at risk.

Re: Universities Have More Intellectual Property than Industry
There are so many moving parts in academia, so "locking down" that traditionally and culturally open environment is a huge challenge for these institutions. I agree, university would like to keep systems open to public to spread the knowledge.

Re: Universities Have More Intellectual Property than Industry
Universities have valuable IP that foreign adversaries would benefit from obtaining. That is true, everybody is after new knowledge wherever it is obviously.

Re: Universities Have More Intellectual Property than Industry
This is particularly troublesome since many universities do not make cybersecurity a top issue in order to maintain an "open" environment That might be because university are open system in general, they want to release research results to get credit.

Re: Universities Have More Intellectual Property than Industry
the attackers are going after the leading-bleeding edge research at universities. That is really interesting for me too. They were after knowledge obviously.

31 terabytes
31 terabytes is huge number or research papers, most of those researches would be public at one point I would assume anyway.
