In recent years, higher education institutions have enjoyed the benefits of well-implemented technologies. From facilities management and digital signage to smart workspaces and digital learning collaboration tools, colleges and universities are becoming digital campuses that realize the ease and efficiency of digital transformation.

But, risks accompany the benefits of going digital. Ensuring that students, faculty, and institutional assets remain secure in the face of malware and other cybersecurity threats is critical. As digital campuses become the new norm, how can we move forward while ensuring information security?

That’s the topic of an upcoming #CiscoChat! Join us on September 28 at 10am PST (1pm EST) to hear from industry experts Navneet Johal (@NavneetJohal1), Research Analyst of Education Technology for Ovum, Matthew Gibbs (@matgibbs), a Solutions Architect for U.S. Public Sector at Cisco and Brian Donlan (@briandonlan), the Regional Vice President of Sales for Cisco Canada.
