Learn Best Cybersecurity Practices at AACRAO 2019 Information Security Panel Discussion

by NSC Blog | Mar 20, 2019 | Clearinghouse News, Tips & Tricks |

John Ramsey, Mike Reilly, and Ed Hudson Discuss Where and How Student Data Is Being Secured

Registrars and enrollment managers play central roles in an institution’s cybersecurity posture.  The choices they make each day directly affect student data security, yet there can be a disconnect between the data’s primary custodians and the information technology (IT) department that manages the systems on which the information is stored.

Join John Ramsey, the Clearinghouse’s chief information security officer; Mike Reilly, executive director at AACRAO; and Ed Hudson, chief information security officer for California State University on Monday, April 1 at 9:15 am during the 2019 AACRAO Annual Meeting for a discussion on best practices to guard against cyber threats.  During this session, you’ll learn:

  • Roles of administrators as members of their institution’s cybersecurity team
  • Questions to ask third-party vendors
  • Recommendations for action steps to protect your institution’s data

In addition to the session, make sure you download our white paper, “Cybersecurity: Why It Matters to Registrars, Enrollment Managers and Higher Education.” The white paper is based on the Clearinghouse’s 25-year record of maintaining the confidentiality and privacy of student records and frequent cybersecurity conversations with registrars, enrollment managers and other institution officials, EDUCAUSE and REN-ISCAC’s cybersecurity work over many years, and current best practices.
