1 Overview CPE credit | Specialized Knowledge
For many universities, data has historically been highly distributed, with only a portion under central administration control. Often, cyber risk is still relegated to IT and treated as a technology problem. Is it time for greater executive attention to and engagement on cybersecurity? We'll discuss:
- Potential impacts of cyber incidents for higher education institutions.
- What effective executive engagement on cybersecurity looks like and how to build a resilient academic enterprise.
- Strategies for integrating information security issues into an institution's senior leadership and board-level agenda.
Participants will learn results of a Deloitte Center for Higher Education Excellence and EDUCAUSE report about cyber governance maturity and executive engagement across higher education.

Higher education has always enjoyed a culture of openness. But cybersecurity experts are increasingly wary of open-source information-sharing, and a new regulation demands that colleges and universities with federal contracts tighten their cyber practices and work to safeguard information.
