Baker Tilly Session – June 15 at 3:30 p.m.:
Cybersecurity Threats to Higher Education
Mike Cullen, Baker Tilly
Institutions of higher education are exposed to a broad range of cybersecurity threats. Because of the vast amounts of data colleges and universities transmit and manage, they are especially susceptible to data breaches, phishing scams and other threats. Collaboration among internal audit and the IT function is critical to monitor and mitigate an institution’s unique risks.
This session will share the typical threat actors and vectors that institutions face, and how stakeholders throughout an institution can use various tools to improve the effectiveness of their cybersecurity program. We will discuss how institutions position risk mitigation strategies and how internal audit can serve as a resource.
Key Learning Objectives:
Recognize common cybersecurity threats to higher education institutions
Understand opportunities to involve internal auditors throughout your institution to contribute to cybersecurity program enhancements
Leverage existing tools and practices, as well as new considerations, to further manage cybersecurity threats
