Raising Awareness of Website Vulnerability: How to Protect Your University's Site from Threats
Apr 5th, 2011
2:45 PM - 3:45 PM
Travis AB/Third Level
Session Type: Corporate and Campus Solutions
As universities make the complete transition to a web-based interface, they must be aware of the constantly evolving strategies and attacks of hackers looking to exploit vulnerable websites. The implementation of an effective website risk management program is crucial to protect the privacy and personal information of students, faculty, and staff. In this session, representatives from WhiteHat Security and American University will discuss how higher education institutions can raise awareness of security threats by implementing a cost-efficient system that can properly assess their risk, and how they can take immediate action toward remediation.
