The list of challenges that institutions must overcome is particularly extensive this year, and the dramatic increase in cyber risk is predominant in the minds of IT leaders everywhere.
CAUDIT is pleased to note the successful completion of the inaugural Four Nation Cybersecurity virtual study tour in collaboration with our sister associations in the United Kingdom (ucisa) and South Africa (ASAUDIT) and the Tour sponsor (Khipu).
Showcasing the best practices of six host universities from the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, and South Africa, this virtual study tour facilitated networking with peers from across the northern and southern hemisphere as delegates came together to consider the security challenges currently facing institutions everywhere.
Aimed at cybersecurity leaders and decision-makers within institutions, this tour was limited to 21 delegates – representatives from seven universities from each of the three associations: ucisa, CAUDIT and ASAUDIT. Participants were encouraged to expand their network of international peers, sharing knowledge and experience on the topics covered and potentially identifying opportunities for future collaboration. Each of the six virtual tour sessions ran for approximately 1.5 hours, with tour participants encouraged to attend all of these to ensure continuity and the best experience for everyone involved.
