The Growing Challenges of Securing Australasian Academia

Download Point of View

How Universities need to adapt to the changing demands that are being placed upon them

Many of the academic institutions in the Australia and New Zealand are having to adapt to new demands in how they work, how they teach and the research work they undertake.

They need to ensure that they achieve and maintain compliance in terms of the capture and use of student data; they need to enable their staff to work remotely without compromising in security or ease of access; enable their students to input and access information irrespective of location; and they need to adapt their research methodology to reflect the challenges of working in a virtual environment.

But critically they need to do this in a secure and safe way that protects against security threats and isolates incursions quickly and effectively, but without limiting operational flexibility and innovation.

This Point of View explores the challenges universities are facing and how we believe they can be addressed.
