Securing the Future of Education: Navigating Cyber Threats and Harnessing AI in Higher Education

Welcome to the Showcase

Securing the Future of Education: Navigating Cyber Threats and Harnessing AI in Higher Education

presented by Cisco

 

In the past year, the education sector continued to be the prime target for cyber threats, a trend highlighted by the Talos Incident Response Q4 2023 Quarterly Trends report. Educational institutions are actively seeking ways to combat cybercrime and ensuring privacy and security amidst the rise of emerging technologies, such as Generative AI. The advancement of AI not only fuels innovation but also equips malicious actors with sophisticated tools for targeted attacks, often revealing the vulnerabilities of complex security infrastructures and the industry's skills shortage. 

In this session, explore:

  • The latest cybersecurity trends and developments, as detailed in the 2024 Digital Readiness Index and the Talos Incident Response Q4 2023 Quarterly Trends report  
  • Effective strategies for protecting students, faculty, and staff in a hybrid learning environment 
  • Empowering Security Operations teams to detect and respond against threats with confidence 
  • Integrating AI as part of your cybersecurity strategy
  • Recent innovations from the RSA Conference and how Cisco and Splunk are better together

Join us with a panel of experts including Reg Johnson, Director Education and Strategic Industries at Cisco, Corien Vermaak, Director of Cybersecurity at Cisco, Professor Frank den Hartog, Cisco Research Chair in Critical Infrastructure at the University of Canberra and our special guest, Peter Seddon, Chief Information Officer at the University of Western Australia. Together, they will provide an in-depth analysis of the pressing issues, share insightful perspectives, and present live demos that will shape the future of security in higher education.
