Does your IT department end up guessing what their security priorities are? Has anyone done an information or system valuation based on sensitivity or operational criticality? Before a security catastrophe strikes and fingers start pointing at the IT department, create a cybersecurity strategy and get university leadership ownership regarding information/system security valuation. Having concurrence on what defines university “sensitive” data and “critical” systems will provide IT security a roadmap that can aid with increased resource allocation and justifiable budget requests. Takeaways include:

  • How to tie university strategic goals to specific IT security actions
  • Options on how to secure identified sensitive data and critical systems
  • How to use a defined cyber security strategy to gain university leadership support for required security assets and resources
