70% of UK universities are phishing victims — and US numbers are likely similar - Autumn A. Arnett, Education Dive

According to a new report from Duo Labs Research, 70% of universities surveyed in a Freedom of Information inquiry have fallen victim to phishing scams in the last year. Several of the schools surveyed indicated multiple attacks, and 10% indicated 51 or more attacks in the last year. The report focused heavily on U.K. institutions, but Jordan Wright, Senior R&D Engineer at Duo Security, said via email, "[I]t's safe to assume that U.S.-based universities are just as vulnerable to phishing attacks as those in the U.K."
