Like other industries that handle sensitive user data, higher education is regulated by a strict set of security
standards. Educational institutions like Waubonsee must invest heavily in security since any vulnerability in smart
building devices, cameras, payment machines, computers, and more could enable hackers to steal critical student
data anywhere in the network.
Still, a strong security posture shouldn’t come at the cost of facilitating open and collaborative learning. For example,
to help Waubonsee students’ pursuing programming careers in game development, Trivedi’s team helped gaming
clubs on campus create their own tendered file networks. With IoT Security, Trivedi can easily monitor students’
devices without disrupting their academics or recreational time.
In a digitally interconnected system like Waubonsee’s, Trivedi says, “risk needs to be dealt with from all perspectives
and not just one dimension.” As opportunities for users to engage with technology continue to grow, maintaining
visibility and control over multidimensional IoT security risks will become even more critical.
