The Future of IAM for Education: How Colleges are Combating the Increase in Cyberattacks
The education sector has witnessed a significant surge in cybersecurity threats, particularly due to the growing prevalence of remote and online learning, as well as the rapid adoption of cloud services. Cyberattacks such as phishing and ransomware have become increasingly common, posing a serious challenge to educational institutions. Unfortunately, many existing identity and access management (IAM) solutions have proven insufficient in safeguarding institutions, their data, and their users from these evolving threats.
In light of this pressing issue, educational institutions are compelled to explore new strategies and deploy more robust IAM solutions to counter the persistent threats posed by hackers. To delve further into this topic, we invite you to join our live webinar scheduled for April 28th at 4pm EST.
Distinguished panelists from three colleges will engage in an insightful discussion covering various aspects, including:
Trends in cybersecurity and the factors influencing their IT priorities: The panelists will shed light on the prevailing trends in the cybersecurity landscape and the key drivers shaping their institutions' IT priorities in response to these challenges.
Impact of the "new normal" on IAM strategy: The shift to remote and online learning has necessitated a reevaluation of IAM strategies. The panelists will share their experiences and insights on how the "new normal" has influenced their approach to IAM.
Best practices for developing and selecting an IAM solution: Attendees will gain valuable insights into the best practices for developing and selecting an effective IAM solution tailored to the unique needs of educational institutions.
Implementing essential IAM features: The panelists will discuss their experiences with implementing vital IAM features such as multi-factor authentication, single sign-on, and self-service password reset for students, faculty, and staff. They will highlight the benefits and challenges encountered during implementation.
