Webinar | Maturing Your Security Program: How Temple University Evolved from Running Basic Scans to Vulnerability Management

This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry & Campus Solutions series.

College and university campuses are extensive and varied places, with missions very different from that of a corporate environment. The institution's mission, teaching, learning, and research require an openness that inhibits many conventional security controls. Because of this, building a security program can feel overwhelming. Giving administrative access to users on their various endpoints and the opened firewall ports is a measured risk. Temple University compensates for that risk with a robust vulnerability management program.

Hear from Temple University’s CISO Seth Shestack on how he partnered with Rapid7 to create their vulnerability management program while balancing the needs of an academic institution.


  • Learn how to create a vulnerability management program in an academic setting
  • Go from simple scanners to scheduled scans to incorporating external scan engines
  • Automate reports to system owners
  • Begin thinking proactively with a shift-left mentality
