The 1% That Can Take Down Your Institution: Cybersecurity Risk in the Digital Classroom

Tuesday, April 19 | 4:15PM–5:15PM | Cascade Ballroom I, Mezzanine Level, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
As educational institutions continue to standardize on cloud platforms, they must secure an increased volume of data moving to the cloud, where faculty, staff, and students have unprecedented levels of control over the creation and distribution of sensitive data. We recently discovered 75% of security risk can be attributed to just 1% of the users in the cloud. This session will examine cloud cybersecurity trends across users, explore collaboration and applications, and share actionable takeaways for a more secure cloud environment. You will learn how focusing on these few users can substantially decrease exposures in a short amount of time.

OUTCOMES: Learn how to improve the cloud security posture of your institution, including best practices for collaboration * Understand user behavior and the implications of the riskiest 1% of users * Examine cloud cybersecurity trends across users and applications
