Colleges and universities are a prime target for hackers simply because of the amount of payment and student/alumni PII data that they process over multiple campus locations. Securing this data can be a challenge due to different software systems, processing providers and methods of payment/data acceptance. With malware and ransomware attacks poised to significantly increase in 2021, it’s more important than ever that higher education institutions implement a holistic payment cybersecurity strategy.

We invite you to join our webinar on June 10th to learn more about:

  • Dark web threats
  • The types of attack vectors that most often target higher education
  • Risks around employee remote access
  • What hackers are looking for when they target colleges and universities
  • The basics of “defending the fort” and securing your system’s perimeter
  • The merits of “devaluing the data” with encryption and tokenization
