Security, Efficiency, and the Cloud for Today's Threat Landscape

Tuesday, May 05 | 4:15PM–5:15PM | Conrad A, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
Today's bad actors are finding new ways to cheaply automate their phishing and malware campaigns to target more end users than ever before. At the same time, institutions must protect a growing population of students, faculty, and staff against threats. In this asymmetrical threat landscape, how can university IT departments increase the scale of their operations without allowing costs to spiral out of control? The presenters will discuss how Tulane's IT department is structuring its response to today's security challenges.

Outcomes: Understand how attackers are scaling their operations to target more end users, both on and off campus networks * Understand how the cloud can help increase visibility and security on complex campus networks * Understand how Tulane has effectively (and efficiently) scaled its security operations to protect a growing university population
