Institutions of higher education manage a high volume and variety of personal information, including education records, financial aid and account information, payment data, health information, and government data. As a result of the breadth and nature of business operations at higher education institutions, as well as the number of faculty, staff, students, and alumni located in many states and countries, institutions are subject to a variety of legal and regulatory compliance requirements for data protection.
It is critical for board members to understand how their institutions have implemented and are maintaining a sustainable and adaptable cybersecurity program that will protect the institution’s data, systems, and constituents.
After hearing from two of the three authors of AGB Press' forthcoming publication, What Board Members Need to Know About Cybersecurity, attendees will:
- Understand the impact of new/changing cybersecurity and information privacy requirements, as well as evolving threats.
- Recognize key questions to ask leadership about how these new requirements and threats impact their institutions and how effective the cybersecurity program is for addressing these items.
- Learn leading practice strategies for cybersecurity programs from higher education practitioners.
