Considered a valuable target, higher education institutions are a treasure trove of personal data for cyber criminals. A single breach can lead to years, or even decades, of stolen student, staff and alumni records as well as intellectual property and university research.
Higher education institutions are continuously balancing the need for academic freedom and research with governance and cybersecurity best practices. By design, higher ed is about the free flow of information and heightened sharing, posing a direct challenge with security ideals to limit exposures. A balanced approach is essential to ensure that academic freedom isn’t challenged, but instead strengthened through pragmatic IT risk and cybersecurity programs.
We bring a practical approach to your cybersecurity, making sense of all the disparate systems, compliance issues and risk mitigation. We help protect academic freedoms by focusing on key areas of risk and allowing you to focus on what matters - academics and students.
