Every day, CrowdStrike works in partnership with our customers to protect organizations across the globe, including a growing number of colleges and universities. Join is in a collaborative discussion as we showcase a prominent institution and how it designed and implemented an innovative approach to keeping its systems secure. Every day, cyber criminals, state-sponsored adversaries, and others work to exploit systems and networks belonging to colleges and universities. Hear one institution’s story of the cybersecurity situation it found itself in and steps it took to quickly mature its cybersecurity strategy. This story includes leveraging the CrowdStrike Overwatch team, a managed threat-hunting service, designed to proactively stop breaches. Hear directly from the Overwatch team as they discuss real examples of interactive and targeted intrusions and how they uncovered them. Joining the Overwatch team is Tina Thorstenson, Executive Public Sector Strategist for Crowdstrike, and Mark Dieterich, CISO from Brown University, discussing insights on how they incorporated CrowdStrike as an extension of their in-house security team to strengthen their security posture.
