RENIC participates in ANUIES-ICT Panel

What have been the main vulnerabilities and threats detected within your institutions as a result of the health emergency?

What impact have you observed in the analysis and development of cybersecurity models and methodologies within your institution in the face of the evident changes in the use of ITs produced by COVID 19?

What do you consider to be the main lines of research that should be strengthened in the face of new cybersecurity threats and exponential use of ITs?

What kind of cyber-risk scenarios should we contemplate in the so-called new normality, in order to be able to define appropriate protection mechanisms and propose innovative and disruptive improvements within our institutions?

On October 29th, the panel THE CHALLENGES OF HIGHER EDUCATION INSTITUTIONS FACING THE REALITY OF COVID 19: A LOOK AT RESEARCH IN CYBERSECURITY came to answer these questions and in which RENIC participated, took place virtually and within the framework of the ANUIES-ICT meeting. The panel was moderated by Dr. Gabriel Sánchez Pérez, Research Professor at the Instituto Politécnico Nacional ESIME Culhuacán, with the participation of experts including:
