The complexities of today’s global economy present numerous challenges for educational institutions around the world. Contemplating new third-party and joint venture relationships while trying to understand and abide by regulatory standards means the barriers to expanding your institution with confidence have never been greater.

Cyber Security

From student transcripts and medical records to research findings and financial information, academic institutions shoulder a heavy burden when safeguarding confidential data. A college or university data breach means navigating a maze of regulations, while working to maintain credibility in the eyes of key constituencies. When leadership is juggling competing priorities such as controlling costs, harnessing e-learning and improving student outcomes, little time or resources are left to focus on university cyber security threats. Learn more.
