University of Idaho Ranks in Top 10 for College Internet Security

According to its first-ever Higher Education Security Report, SecurityScorecard ranks the University of Idaho‬ in the top 10 for internet security among colleges. 

SecurityScorecard studied universities with 1,000 or more public IP addresses and graded their security posture based on the reputation of their IP addresses, Web application security on their public-facing apps, DNS health, and network security, including whether they generate bot traffic from infected machines in their networks. Data gathered from SecurityScorecard's sensor-based network is then analyzed by the company's analysis tools, and scored. The firm also studies so-called "hacker chatter" in underground forums about the organizations in question.
