Institutions of higher education hold sensitive data about students, faculty, and the administration across numerous parameters—personal, financial, medical, and intellectual property. As a result, colleges and universities face a confusing array of laws and regulations in the cybersecurity arena. At the same time, they have become a primary target for hackers and cybercriminals from the United States and abroad. Proliferating reliance on mobile devices and the mounting threat of ransomware also call for rigorous new approaches to risk assessment and remediation. This program will provide practical strategies for colleges and universities to tackle the escalating risks posed by cyberattacks.

Among other topics, the program will cover:

  • Analysis of FERPA, HIPAA, the Gramm-Leach Bliley Act and other laws and regulations that govern cybersecurity in higher education;
  • Current trends in cyberattacks and ransomware; and
  • Cybersecurity insurance and third party agreements.
