New IT Security Module in Redesigned Core Data Service

The new Core Data Service (CDS) Dashboard, the online hub for survey data entry, is now live and Phase 1: Data Collection has officially begun. As redesigned in 2010–11, CDS points to a new, more flexible vision for EDUCAUSE research and analytics. The new survey has been modularized to facilitate delegation of survey input. Most of the modules are optional, including a new one dedicated to IT security. This module, with questions about IT security organization, staffing, policies, and practices related to information technology security, was developed with feedback received from members at the 2010 Security Professionals Conference.

The more participation we have in CDS, the greater the value of the data service to our community. The EDUCAUSE primary representative at each eligible institution manages participation in the Core Data survey. If you are interested in ensuring your school completes the new security module and you are not the primary rep, you can log in to the CDS dashboard to view your survey administrators. You can ask them to delegate you as the author of the security module. You must submit data by June 17 to gain access to the service and download data later this summer.
