Chicago, October 7, 2020: Campus Consortium, a global nonprofit education association, announced that it will be hosting a live EdTalk titled “IT Security & SOC by Barnard College, Columbia University, Stevens Institute of Technology and The Juilliard School” on Thursday, October 29, 2020.

In this session, Christine Whalley, Director, Information Security at Barnard College, Columbia College; Tej Patel, Chief Information Officer at Stevens Institute of Technology; Steve Doty, Chief Technology Officer at The Juilliard School; and Karl Horvath, Ph.D., President at Campus Consortium will talk about why we must improve and safeguard our teaching, learning and remote working environments, and leveraging a 24×7 Security Operations Center is a crucial first step in that direction.

“Technology is vital to Higher education more than ever before due to the pandemic impact. With remote access, data storage, compliance and online learning it is critical for institutions to include IT Security as a number one priority. This does not mean a one-time or infrequent assessment, but an ongoing practice of monitoring and mitigating cyberthreats from inside and outside of the network. A developed and established IT security stance protects students, faculty and staff.” said Karl Horvath, Ph.D., President of Campus Consortium.

Why attend this EdTalk:

The after-effects of Covid-19 will leave a long-lasting effect in higher education teaching and learning methodology. As we move to online platforms, cyber threats and risks to network security increase exponentially. We must improve and safeguard our teaching, learning and remote working environments, and leveraging a 24×7 Security Operations Center is a crucial first step in that direction.

In this session, the panelists will discuss how Covid-19 changed and modeled the dynamics of IT security for higher education in 2020. Learn from experiences shared by IT leaders from higher education institutions in how leveraging a 24×7 Security Operations Center as a step towards strengthening IT security at their campus.
