Securing Education Organizations

Educational institutions, including schools, colleges, and universities, hold significant amounts of sensitive data, such as student records, research data, and financial information. These institutions are increasingly becoming targets for cyberattacks, including data breaches and ransomware. Penetration testing helps educational institutions identify vulnerabilities in their IT systems, learning management systems (LMS), and online platforms.

Regular penetration testing enables educational institutions to secure their digital environments against potential threats, ensuring the protection of student and staff data. By addressing security weaknesses, these institutions can maintain the integrity of their academic and administrative functions, comply with data protection regulations, and provide a safe digital learning environment.

Rarefied has worked with a variety of educational institutions at all levels to help identify vulnerabilities in their systems.


Education organizations are often concerned with the following compliance Standards:

General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
International Organization for Standardization 27001 (ISO)
National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)

All of these standards mandate or recommend penetration testing to help ensure security best practices are being followed, and this is where Rarefied can assist your organization.

You can click on any of the above standards pertaining to Education to read more about them. You can also view a list of Industries Rarefied commonly performs Penetration Testing and digital security services for.
