The Cyber Threat Landscape for Higher Education and Research Institutions

A FireEye Threat Intelligence Report

As hosts of sensitive research data, breeding grounds for knowledgeable intelligence assets, and ground zero for hacktivism efforts and identity theft, academic institutions are high priority targets for cyber espionage actors.

The FireEye Threat Intelligence report, “The Cyber Threat Landscape for Higher Education and Research Institutions” outlines the cyber challenges faced by academia so security professionals can work to be better prepared.

Research universities that face increasingly concrete federal compliance requirements such as NIST 800-171 may be able to use portions of this report to initiate proactive cybersecurity programs that address specific attack group tools, techniques and procedures (TTPs).
