Each year budgets get tighter and resources slimmer as your responsibilities grow. In addition to leading your team, you’re responsible for secure onboarding, offboarding, and managing faculty, staff, and students to ensure their password behaviors don’t put your institution at risk.
Yet, in 2021, higher education ranked as one of the top 5 of industries experiencing significant data breaches. With 45% of breaches due to hacking via stolen credentials, it’s apparent users’ password management behaviors still pose a serious risk to universities (Verizon DBIR 2022).
University admins need a solution that meets their budget, integrates with existing technology, and covers all of their password management needs. Internet2 + LastPass is just that solution.
