UUK Cyber Security Policy Briefing, Jul 12 Slide 8 “Given the importance of universities to the UK economy and to economic prosperity in general, it is essential to increase the level of awareness of, and resilience to, cyber threat in the sector.” “Cyber security can all too often be thought of as an IT issue, rather than a strategic risk management issue.” The cyber threats facing universities today will not be solved through investment in technology alone, but through concerted risk assessment which results in: universities identifying which critical information assets need to be prioritised for protection; and the establishment of a cyber risk oversight structure at senior level.”
