Online education market: major challenge

The main challenges affecting the growth of the e-learning and online education market is cybersecurity. With the increasing digitization of education, threats related to information security, unauthorized access and privacy of student data have increased. The main reasons for the vulnerability of the education sector to cyber-attacks are the availability of valuable user and organizational data, the lack of a centralized data storage structure and the unregulated use of personal digital devices. The main sources of cybersecurity threats to educational content are malware viruses, such as WannaCry, through social media, the virtualization of systems and the consumption of IT. Therefore, the inadequacy of the cybersecurity measures of educational institutions and individual students is expected to hinder the growth of the global online education market during the forecast period.
