Guardians of Academia: Battling Cyber Threats in Higher Education

Donna Kidwell, CISO of Arizona State University, is one of the best and brightest in our community! I am continually amazed at her insights, strategic focus, and ability to creatively tackle some of the biggest problems in cybersecurity. 

Today, in The Cybersecurity Vault podcast (episode #31), we talked about the incredible challenges and forward-thinking that her team is driving at ASU and across partnerships around the globe.
