Safeguarding Higher Education: Addressing Key Cybersecurity Risks

Thanks for attending Safeguarding Higher Education: Addressing Key Cybersecurity Risks! We'll see you at our next event. Till then, you can relive the talks anytime, right here:

Join Greg Pollock, VP of Product at UpGuard, and Steve Lovaas, CISO at Colorado State University, for an engaging and informative webinar exploring the top cybersecurity risks faced by higher education institutions, including risks from third-party vendors.

In today's rapidly evolving digital landscape, the security risks to colleges and universities from third-party vendors are rapidly increasing, with the potential to compromise sensitive data, research findings, and intellectual property. Now, more than ever, it is essential for educational institutions to proactively identify cybersecurity threats and understand why robust Vendor Risk Management strategies are required to address them.

In this webinar, Greg and Steve will cover:

  • An in-depth analysis of the top cybersecurity risks faced by colleges and universities, such as ransomware, exploited vulnerabilities, breaches, and growing third-party risk
  • The role of Vendor Risk Management in detecting the risks that can impact the security of your institution's valuable data and resources
  • How the Higher Education Community Vendor Assessment Tool (HECVAT) can assist with improving security ratings and third-party risk.

Whether you're a CISO or Director, analyst, cybersecurity professional, or decision-maker in higher education, this webinar will equip you with the knowledge to ensure your institution stays ahead of emerging cyber threats from third-party vendors.
