As a university, UNB sees a staggering number of intrusion attempts on its network—nearly 83 attempts per second totaling roughly 51 million attempts per week. According to David Shipley, director of Strategic Initiatives for UNB’s Information Technology Services, this isn’t surprising. Attempts to steal intellectual property and abuse UNB’s infrastructure to attack third parties, advanced DDoS attacks, and a culture that encourages open information exchange make UNB complex to defend.
