The Changing Face of Cybersecurity on Campus

Protecting people, data and systems in higher education is different today than it was even two years ago. For one, campus leaders have a much greater understanding of cybersecurity risk; for another, the defense-in-depth approach has become more common, hardening the security stance in ways that single point solutions could never achieve on their own.

Recently, in a Campus Technology webcast, two IT leaders — Joel Reeves, associate vice chancellor and chief information officer for the University of Tennessee, Knoxville (UTK), and Mark Hoeting, executive counselor with Info-Tech Research Group and former Georgia Tech CIO — shared their perspectives on protecting campus data in an era of evolving risk. The discussion was moderated by Andy Stone, Pure Storage field chief technology officer in the Americas.
