A Librarian’s Guide to Cybercrime Mitigation (Scholarly Networks Security Initiative)
With threats to online systems steadily on the rise, cybersecurity has become everyone’s responsibility – both privately and professionally. As higher education undergoes digital transformation, universities are increasingly vulnerable to cyberthreats. Mitigating these risks can be especially challenging for mid to small institutions and their libraries. Panelists include Ben Woelk, speaking from the perspective of the CISO’s office in charge of training and awareness programs at Rochester Institute of Technology, Theda Schwing from the statewide academic library consortium OhioLINK which manages many issues between publishers and libraries in the consortial context, and Carlota Sage from Fractional CISO discussing the special challenges for mid-and small organizations, as well as common situations that may put a user and consequently university and library content and services at risk. The program will include interactive exercises so participants can test their own risk exposure on the open web. Tips for how to proactively protect against threats will also be shared with attendees.
