1
Higher EducationCybersecurity Strategy,
Programs, and Initiatives
  • Rodney Petersen
  • Policy Analyst Security Task Force Coordinator
  • EDUCAUSE

2
Higher Ed Cybersecurity
  • Through its core mission of teaching and
    learning, it is the main source of our future
    leaders, innovators, and technical workforce.
  • Through research, it is the basic source of much
    of our new knowledge and subsequent technologies.
  • As complex institutions, colleges and
    universities operate some of the worlds largest
    collections of computers and high-speed networks.

3
Aim of Cybersecurity
  • Confidentiality - Computers, systems, and
    networks that contain information require
    protection from unauthorized use or disclosure.
  • Integrity - Computers, systems, and networks that
    contain information must be protected from
    unauthorized, unanticipated, or unintentional
    modification.
  • Availability - Computers, systems and networks
    must be available on a timely basis to meet
    mission requirements or to avoid substantial
    losses.

4
Strategic Goals of the Security Task Force
  • The Security Task Force received a grant from
    National Science Foundation to identify and
    implement a coordinated strategy for computer and
    network security for higher education. The
    following strategic goals have been identified
  • Education and Awareness
  • Standards, Policies, and Procedures
  • Security Architecture and Tools
  • Organization and Information Sharing

5
Awareness and Training
  • Goal
  • To increase the awareness of the associated
    risks of computer and network use and the
    corresponding responsibilities of higher
    education executives and end-users of technology
    (faculty, staff, and students), and to further
    the professional development of information
    technology staff.
  • Programs
  • Outreach to Higher Ed Associations and Beyond
  • Annual Security Professionals Conference
  • Education Awareness Working Group
