Throughout 2021 the Higher Education sector faced a new challenge in the form of cyberattacks and hackers. In this session we explore what measures can be put in place to defend your data.
Senior leadership teams in universities must not only have disaster recovery measures in place but also understand the different types of cyberattacks and construct a cyber risk mitigation strategy.
