Ransomware attacks on colleges and universities are the latest cyber threat to hit the headlines. Reports from campuses in Colorado, New Jersey, and New York City are examples of how higher education is one of the most targeted industries with a significant number of users and vast amounts of data to protect.
If successful, ransomware attacks have proven to be extremely lucrative. Security leaders within higher education need strategies that help mitigate these common attacks quickly to get ahead of threat actors today – as well as for the strategies these attackers use in the future.
Join us as we discuss how Okta + Proofpoint work together to prevent ransomware attacks by allowing you to:
- Adopt a people-centric approach to security that protects against credential theft, phishing, and ransomware attacks
- Gain visibility into your most targeted users and apply granular security policies to all your users
- Orchestrate remediation actions on potentially compromised users, like quarantining emails, prompting for multi-factor authentication (MFA), and other adaptive controls which reduce exposure to ransomware attacks
