A 2020 report found that between 2005 and 2020, K–12 school districts and colleges/universities experienced data breaches that affected more than 24.5 million records. Not only that, higher education institutions are now frequently targeted by ransomware and malware attacks, resulting in millions of dollars in payments and increased stress and burnout on already constrained security staffs.
In this interactive discussion, experts and practitioners from Charleston Southern University and Arctic Wolf will share their experiences developing, refining, and hardening the institution’s cybersecurity posture in the ever-evolving higher education landscape. The presenters will also address how to identify the right tools, team structure, and partners to align your security approach to your institution’s immediate needs and long-term goals.
