Extending Cyber Protection Across Your Entire University

Wednesday 11th August, 2021

HEITSA Enhances its Higher Education Sector Cyber Security Framework.

Many educational institutions regardless of location or size, are under increasing pressure to ensure that their business objectives and strategies are met and exceeded through ‘always on, always available’ on-premise and cloud infrastructures that are securely accessible to their users regardless of location. The implications of any disruption to service could result in crippled workforces, financial loss, fines and reputational damage.


The on-going impact of COVID-19 continues to attract new waves of cyber criminals seeking weaknesses across all organisations – with universities being a number 1 target. This adds even more complexity as not only are you trying to ensure that your infrastructures are readily available and secure to deliver and support remote learning, teaching and research, you must also be prepared and able to respond effectively to cyber breaches.


HEITSA, in partnership with KHIPU, are pleased to announce that additional solutions and services are now available to help universities improve cyber threat protection, enhance remote access and simplify overall management of cyber security across their institution.

Please join HEITSA and KHIPU Networks on Wednesday 11th August from 10:30 – 11:30 where we will be to announcing the addition of Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Firewalls including Hardware Appliances, Consumption-Based Firewalls and Remote Access Services to the current framework. The session will include:

10h30 – 10h35 Welcome and Introduction – Val Theron – General Manager
10h35 – 10h50 HEITSA Nationwide SOC and Framework Update – Gareth Trollip – Country Manager
10h50 – 11h10 Next-Generation Firewall Update – Ross Templeton – System Engineering Manager
11h10 – 11h20 A Q&A with Pieter Du Plooy from Sol Plaatje University – Addressing cyber threats through regular assessments and virtualising remote access
