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.

Education Technology 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 the panel discussion to discover:

  • 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 questions for the panel.
