How OmniSOC and REN-ISAC Joined Forces to Meet the Log4Shell Threat

Wednesday, May 04 | 9:15AM–10:00AM ET | Grand Ballroom I-III, 3rd Floor
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Presentation/Panel Session

The higher education and research threat landscape is complex and kaleidoscopic in nature, ever changing and unpredictable. The steady increase in both frequency and types of threats seen by our institutions, on top of the day-to-day challenges faced in the mission to ensure student success and support institutional research, highlights the importance and usefulness that membership in security organizations can serve. OmniSOC and REN-ISAC are on the frontlines of higher education and research’s cybersecurity fight. Every day, these two premier cybersecurity organizations collaborate to protect the higher education and research communities and their members. In this session, team members from each organization will walk attendees through a behind-the-scenes look at what OmniSOC and REN-ISAC do individually, how they leverage their affiliation to best serve their members and the community at large, and, most recently, how they expeditiously joined forces to address (and continue to address) the Log4Shell exploit.
