Webinar Abstract

Schools have a massive footprint and attack surface on social media & external digital platforms — all of which is either monitored manually or remains entirely ungoverned and unprotected by the existing security perimeter — exposing institutions to cyber attacks, physical threats, data loss, student scams, reputational brand risk and account takeovers. Having the tools in place to support your security stack is crucial to allowing your school community to engage securely on campus and across digital channels.
