“Technology is vital to Higher education more than ever before due to the pandemic impact. With remote access, data storage, compliance and online learning it is critical for institutions to include IT Security as a number one priority. This does not mean a one-time or infrequent assessment, but an ongoing practice of monitoring and mitigating cyberthreats from inside and outside of the network. A developed and established IT security stance protects students, faculty and staff.” said Karl Horvath, Ph.D., President at La Salle University and President of Campus Consortium
