Canvas cloud architecture security risks



O’Keefe State University located in New Mexico has recently started using Canvas for online course delivery. Canvas hosts all the data in its own cloud storage. Students may log in to the systems form any personal device (laptops, phones, etc.). On-campus students can also use library computers. Note that the browsers may store student credentials (IDs and passwords) in a browser.


Write a two-page security risk analysis to identify all possible security risks associated with the usage of Canvas in the library or on home computers.

Specifically address whether Canvas cloud architecture increases or decreases the cybersecurity risks associated with it, when compared to an old learning system that stored all student data on a servers located on-campus and managed by the university IT personnel.
