Higher Ed data breaches have been happening for a long time, but recently, it seems to be happening more often. One of the most recent university data breaches hit Georgia Institute of Technology (Georgia Tech), exposing up to 1.3 million individuals’ data.
According to the Georgia Tech News Center, the April 2019 breach exposed information like students’ names, dates of birth, and email addresses. However, these were not just current records. The hackers stole many years’ worth of data.
