Addressing Cyber Security Threats in Research and Education

Time 03/06/19 01:15PM-02:15PM

Room Monument (M4)

Session Abstract

Recent high-profile cyber attacks have prompted Education institutions globally to enhance their security network. Threat Intelligence data threaded into your expansive network security solution can make the difference between preemptively taking meaningful action to avoid the impact of a cyber breach versus letting suspicious events happen unchecked without analysis or response. In this interactive panel session, we’ll explore the recent evolution of the cyber threat landscape in research and education. Security experts will describe their hands-on, real-world experience in successfully deterring hackers and preventing attacks against high-value, distributed research and learning targets. Using this background, the panelists will discuss how IT and security leaders can take the lead in delivering the next-generation of strategic, cohesive, and integrated protection for evolving education networks and sensitive research data.

Learning objectives:

  1. Review today’s expansive attack surface and various ways the bad actors can penetrate research and education networks, via remote access, social engineering or third party vulnerability exploits

  2. Discuss specialized technology requirements for evolving protection, such as segmenting organizational networks into smaller networks to detect and contain security events and incidents in explicit segments

  3. Understand how HigherEd IT and security leaders can continuously protect their organization as new threats emerge through programmatic advancement in skill development, governance and strategic partner management, not just technology
