Live panel discussion: Digital transformation in UK higher education
Driving benefits and managing risk through Identity as a Service
Digitalisation has changed how we interact, live and work. Cloud, mobile-first platforms and the Internet of Things are driving a new digital economy, and it’s growing fast. As these connections grow, the digital economy is literally transforming the UK’s education sector.
University Business is delighted to host this panel discussion in partnership with HE cloud specialist Okta and Aris Koliopoulos, head of IT at Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London.
Technology provides students with unprecedented information and power to shape their environment, and institutions with opportunities to transform how they manage their workforce and engage with students.
That opportunity doesn’t come without challenges, however. It also leaves institutions with a complex, large-scale web of users and apps as well as a new threat landscape. Managing and securing these new technologies can be challenging, costly and time-consuming for institutions.
Watch our panel discussion to learn the following:
• How to successfully, and safely, manage the technologies for all users: staff, students, partners, alumni
• Security landscape of cloud computing, mobile solutions and other technologies
• Authenticating identity and authorising access as the new front in the escalating war with cyber adversaries
Our audience are encouraged to contribute to the discussion and time was made available at the end for any questions for the panel.
