How Proactive Cybersecurity Measures Can Save Institutions Millions

Data breaches are steadily rising at universities, costing an average of $4.77 million per breach*.

With colleges and universities now being targeted by ransomware and malware attacks, higher education institutions are being forced to pay millions of dollars in payments and are increasing the stress and burnout placed on an already constrained security staff. In the upcoming webinar hosted by EDUCAUSE, experts and practitioners from Charleston Southern University and Arctic Wolf will share their experiences with developing, refining, and hardening their cybersecurity posture in the ever-evolving higher education landscape.

This interactive discussion 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. In this webinar, attendees will:

  • Hear how the pandemic has shifted the prioritization of goals and requirements of institutions

  • Understand the changing stakes of cyber attacks as student data and intellectual property become attractive targets for malicious actors

  • Learn what institutions can do to protect themselves in light of a shifting threat landscape
