Session Type: Policy and Compliance
The composition of a data breach is complex, particularly the notification process that's now required by law in most states. Universities and colleges have made preparations, but information security hinges on people and procedures, not the technical settings. The panelists will compare the commonalities, as well as the distinctions, among breaches on their campuses. Topics will include decision making about notification, notification logistics, fallout management, and preventative measures, as well as the underlying principle that maintaining the status quo can lead to vulnerability in today's dynamic security environment. This presentation is an expansion of a September/October 2008 EDUCAUSE Review article.
