Webinar | How to Mitigate Payment Security Risks in Higher Education

This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry Insights series.

Higher education institutions are frequent targets of cyberattacks, mainly due to the large amount of sensitive data they collect and store. With universities supporting many campus departments and organizations, ensuring robust security to mitigate risks and protect the sensitive data collected across campus is complex. In honor of Cybersecurity Awareness month, this session will highlight tips and tools to help keep your campus safe.

Join us for a fireside chat with Mariana Diaz, Senior Director of Student Accounts & Auxiliary Services at Stevens Institute of Technology; and Charmaine Daniels, manager of Deployment Consulting at Flywire, as they discuss threats higher education IT professionals should be aware of or consider to reduce payment risks, as well as ways to heighten overall security.

In this live webinar, we will discuss working toward PCI DSS v4.0 compliance, digitizing student financial processes, and fostering cross-campus collaboration.


  • Explore the importance of working towards PCI DSS v4.0 compliance to keep your campus secure.
  • Gain insights into how digitizing student financial processes can reduce human errors, delays, and security breaches in order to provide a positive student experience.
  • Learn how fostering cross-campus collaboration reduces security risks by fostering cooperative thinking.
