#EduTECH Asia’s Webinar series has been put together to continue sharing with our education community on what is upcoming in EdTech and how schools and universities are continuing with teaching and learning during current challenging times. 


Our fourth Webinar on 30th April on tackled a very important topic on “Protecting students from cyberattacks and data intrusion”. The webinar focused on taking proactive measures to prevent cyberattacks and finding a balance in preparing institutional system to thwart security breaches.

Joining us for the panel discussion were Matt Harris, EdTech Consultant, Singapore, who moderated the panel; and Mayuri Ambule, Director of Educational Technology, The British School New Delhi, IndiaLt. Col (Retired) Mustaffa Bin Ahmad, Deputy General Senior Vice President – Outreach and Capacity Building Division, CyberSecurity Malaysia:  An Agency under the Ministry of Communications and Multimedia MalaysiaNoel Feria, Educator, Privacy and Security Advocate, University of the Philippines, Dr. Kavitha Muthy, Chief Strategy Officer, Intellize Tech Services, Malaysia who joined us as panellists.

Over the years, we have observed how the education sector has become more susceptible to cyberattacks, which can threaten institutions’ intellectual property and student data. Hackers have multiple doors to enter the system because of an open network for staff and students. During the 45-minute panel discussion, the panellists discussed how cybersecurity can be holistically approached across the faculty and collaborative efforts have to be enforced to mitigate these issues. The last 15 minutes in webinar was dedicated for a live Q&A session. The panellists shared tips and tricks on how you can protect your institution from cyberattacks.
