UK university cyber security is once again under the spotlight after Lancaster University reveals that it has been targeted by a phishing attack used to send fake invoices.
Less than two months after a report revealed that universities are continually under cyber attack, Lancaster University has reported a phishing attack to the National Crime Agency (NCA) and the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO).
According to the report sponsored by VMware and Dell EMC, cyber attacks on UK universities presents an increasing risk to national security, with 93% of university research commissioned by government and almost a third of that relating to national security.
