Securing esports in higher education: Are you ready?

Understanding esports’ unique cyber vulnerabilities

Esports is booming. But unsecured gaming consoles and streaming devices built for home use bring cyber risks into a school’s IT environment. Securing esports network integration has lagged, exposing gamers and schools to unwelcome cyberthreats.
