Information security essentials for higher education
Tools and practices for identifying, assessing, and managing risk
- A strong infosec plan focuses on people as much as technology.
- It’s important to create an institution-wide culture of commitment to security.
- Cloud offers tremendous potential to improve security, mobility, agility, and scale.

Information security is an ongoing practice, not a one-time implementation. But with careful planning—and a sustained investment of resources—you can effectively mitigate risk.
