The latest ECAR CDS Spotlight Research Bulletin (released today) focuses on CDS data about the information systems risk assessment trends for colleges and universities. The report is available to ECAR subscribers and will be released to the public in five months. Abstract This Spotlight bulletin focuses on 2011 CDS survey results related to information systems (IS) risk assessments. Research findings and industry experience demonstrate that conducting a security risk assessment helps increase an institution's security posture and also helps prioritize the allocation of limited IT resources. A growing percentage of institutions across all Carnegie Classifications have conducted a campus IS security risk assessment, and this research looks at the data by institution size to provide an alternative view of IS risk.
