with Chris Stucker, Associate Director for Identity and Access Management, University of Utah; Morey J. Haber, Chief Security Officer at BeyondTrust
This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry & Campus Solutions series.
As the evolving threat landscape continues to grow in complexity, so does the volume of intellectual property, attributes, and privileged identities within college and university systems. Securely managing access controls for undergraduate and graduate students, facility, university hospitals, healthcare systems, and more can be an intricate task. Colleges and universities have robust user populations, and this multifaceted network of users, admins, and accounts requires a complete privileged access management (PAM) strategy that secures the many different privileged accounts within higher ed. Recent cyberbreach news is a reminder that privileged credentials are highly targeted by threat actors and need to be protected at all times. BeyondTrust's Universal PAM approach aligns with NIST-CSF to help colleges and universities mitigate internal and external threats (NIST-CSF Protect), achieve compliance, and receive federal funding and competitive grants.
Chris started his career as a US Army Intelligence officer. Since his departure from that life, he has worked in a variety of IT and security roles in both the private and public sector, primarily in manufacturing, higher education, and health care. His current role involves a primary focus on the IAM program for a major University and Health Care system.
