Data Breach and Cyber-security in higher education

Presenter: Brian Knotts, Senior Vice President, Ellucian

In this session, we will present insight into how an institution should be thinking about cyber-security. According to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse, the higher education industry accounts for 17% of the data breaches second only to the medical industry. What are the most common breaches in higher education and how can they be prevented. What should your institution handle a data breach? We will also discuss security controls from the SANS Institute (The SANS 20) and how to address them. Finally, there will be time to address your questions. We will have several handouts to those that attend the session.
