Institutions need a proactive cybersecurity approach to safeguard their digital assets and cloud-based workspaces. We will share real-world scenarios and best practices for establishing a comprehensive security routine that is actionable and effective even for teams struggling with staffing or split responsibilities. Attendees will gain practical experience configuring and optimizing cloud-based workspace security settings through hands-on exercises and Lewis & Clark case studies. Engage with Meredith Goddard, Lewis & Clark College Director of Enterprise Applications, as she maps her approach to daily security checks utilizing dashboards and alert features and employs the security investigation tool to address threats. Learn how the college utilized a Google audit to prioritize settings changes and engage in collaborative security initiatives. Hear how Lewis & Clark responded to a catastrophic cyberattack in spring 2023 using Google’s built-in tools. The session unfolds as a dynamic exploration of Google Workspace for Education's security landscape, delving into Lewis & Clark’s experiences to unravel platform complexities. Real-world scenarios offer a deep understanding of security features. Our goal is to equip participants with theoretical knowledge and practical skills, allowing them to proactively fortify digital defenses. By session end, attendees adeptly leverage Google Workspace's security features, staying ahead in the perpetual battle against cyberthreats.
