    The pandemic has caused great disruption to our society, in the way we live, work, and the impact is also being felt across universities and colleges.

    In response, educators have had to rapidly adapt and build curriculum that can be delivered through online courses and set in place infrastructure to support remote and distance learning. Many have faced challenges on how to do this securely and at scale, not only to support the needs of today, but also meet demands for the foreseeable future.

    Yet, online learning introduces many new risks for education institutions and opens up greater opportunities for cyber adversaries – something that is nothing new in education – but is compounded by the rapid changes and disruption brought about by the pandemic.
