DMARC Monitoring Services for Educational Institutions

Schools and universities store students’ personal data, making them a lucrative target for phishing

Why are educational institutions at such a high risk of being spoofed?

  • Educational organizations like schools, colleges and universities need to collect, process and store huge amounts of personal information belonging to their students. These can include things like residential addresses, social numbers, and bank account numbers. 

  • According to a study in 2018, of 3,600 domains belonging to top universities in the US, only 11% even had a published DMARC policy, let alone enforcement.

  • Cybercriminals commonly target students and faculty, sending fake emails from the institution’s real domain, asking for login access, sensitive personal information, and money transfers. 

  • This can lead to serious legal action being taken against the organizations, especially if the students happen to be minors below the age of 18.
