Cybersecurity & Data Protection

Innovative technological advances, cutting edge research, intellectual property, and personal data are integral to higher education. Educational institutions have the capacity to dynamically serve students at a distance through the use of technology. However, to ensure technology continues to benefit students, best practices for cybersecurity must be observed by the entire academic community, from students to leadership. Established best practices will help safeguard the institution from exposure to cyberattacks causing a data breach or infrastructure breakdown affecting services.
