Community colleges and universities are the ultimate Bring Your Own Device disaster. Faculty, staff and students from all over the world converge on the same network storing sensitive data, all which must be protected to comply with HIPAA, FERPA and PCI.

Tight funds and limited staff to protect devices they ultimately can’t even control or modify are huge barriers. The typical approach to using threat intelligence requires spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on tools (plus having large teams), but it doesn’t have to be this way.

This talk will discuss what threats and unique risks are faced by community colleges and universities. Also, how operationalizing threat intelligence in an automated fashion can be cost-effective and provide broad protection for BYOD and IoT devices.

From the Guy Who Keeps Putting Cyber Criminals In Jail, Learn:

  • What are the unique threats faced by higher education institutions?
  • How can threat intelligence be used to protect organizations?
  • How using ISACs and automation can provide protection on the network-level and still protect “uncontrollable” devices.
