Cybersecurity for colleges and universities
Safeguarding student information, data, and assets
In a world where digital environments are an embedded part of the higher education institution, it’s important to protect student, faculty, and research data while allowing space for effective collaboration. While cyber attackers adjust their tactics at an alarming pace, college and university Chief Information Security Officers (CISOs) and their security leadership teams also face high expectations from senior academic and administrative leadership to develop and maintain a sound cyber risk and governance regime. Deloitte can help colleges and universities become more diligent and deliberate in being secure and resilient, focusing on policies, and controls to prevent the compromise of their most risk-sensitive assets and operations.
