Elevating Security Awareness
Increasing the Relevance and Scalability of End-User Education
As data breaches become more common in higher education, many IT leaders are reinvesting in technology protections and rewriting policies. However, few have critically examined how their security awareness and education campaigns engage stakeholders and enfranchise end-users in campus information security.
This study outlines the best practices of how to:
- Hardwire data breach response on campus
- Proactively educate boards and executives about security issues
- Make risks relevant for end-users and department leaders
- Vividly demonstrate vulnerability using real campus data
- Incent secure behaviors
Through the use of case studies, content examples, a compendium of security key performance indicators, and native-format tools available for download, this resource will help IT refresh and restructure campus information security awareness.
