HEITSA Security Operations Centre (SOC) Framework
24x7x365 Cyber-Threat Detection, Response, Protection & Prevention for the South African Higher Education SectorJOIN A 15-MINUTE WEBINAR
For the education sector, cyber breaches are becoming less of a possibility and more of an inevitability. Many are accepting this reality and seeking to add another layer of proactive cyber security to their existing investments. However, whilst this necessity to detect and respond to cyber threats 24x7x365 is ever-present, the costs and associated training required to establish an in-house security operations centre (SOC) are, in most cases, inhibitive factors.
It is for these reasons that, across the past three years, KHIPU having been working closely with our South African and UK university customers to both discover and fully understand the common challenges and pain-points impacting the education sector. Taking this knowledge in-house, we have developed and implemented our unique community-driven Security Operations Centre (SOC) solutions, providing institutions of all sizes with budget-conscious round-the-clock proactive cyber security protection.
Over the past three years, we have been developing SOC services in partnership with our education sector customers with the overall focus around affordable immediate threat detection, response and protection. By gaining intelligence from our customers and global threat feeds, this enables the KHIPU SOC to rapidly respond to and mitigate threats across all institutions using our services. A unique community-driven service to continually improve the sectors overall cyber security posture.

By providing standardised cyber security offerings across the education sector enables our Security Operations Centre (SOC) teams to leverage a combination of intelligence from multiple global threat feeds and data drawn from our customers so we can proactively communicate and protect against highly sophisticated threats as well as raise awareness of unusual behaviour to every customer subscribed.
This gives us the capabilities to rapidly mitigate threats sector wide – a community driven approach where our ‘safety in numbers’ strategy brings customers together as the overall common goal is to continually improve the sector’s cyber security posture, security operations and efficiencies.
