Webinar | Take Control of Privileged Accounts Before Attackers Do

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

As the evolving threat landscape continues to grow in complexity, so does the volume of intellectual property, attributes, and privileged identities within university systems. Securely managing access controls while improving remote support for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, teachers, and more, can be an intricate task.

Universities have robust user populations, and this multifaceted network of users, admins, and accounts requires a complete Privileged Access Management (PAM) strategy that secures the many different privileged accounts within a higher ed system. BeyondTrust’s Universal PAM approach helps universities mitigate and deter internal and external threats. Join BeyondTrust's Chief Security Strategist Chris Hills; University of South Florida (USF) Director and Security Architect Dennis Guillette; and Lead Security Engineer, Michael Canfield for a discussion of how and why a holistic PAM strategy will:


  • Increase confidence in your Identity Access Management roadmap while significantly bolstering security
  • Dramatically improve productivity across university IT teams and systems
  • Provide IT admins with visibility into what’s happening on your network and when it’s happening
  • Help shape a strategic plan for your university’s cybersecurity future
