The Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) supports higher education institutions as they improve information security governance, compliance, data protection, and privacy programs. HEISC accomplishes this work through volunteer groups supported by professional EDUCAUSE staff, as well as collaborations with other organizations that address information security and privacy in higher education. HEISC actively develops and promotes information security leadership, awareness, and understanding; effective practices and policies; and guidance for the protection of critical data, IT assets, and infrastructures.

Information Security Guide: Effective Practices and Solutions for Higher Education
The Information Security Guide: Effective Practices and Solutions for Higher Education is a compendium of information providing guidance on effective approaches to the application of information security at institutions of higher education.

The guide's content is actively maintained by a large group of volunteers who are information security practitioners at a variety of colleges and universities. The content itself is a rich combination of materials written for the guide, articles written for other publications, presentations from information security conferences, case studies, examples of processes, procedures, and forms used by various institutions, toolkits, hot topics, and references to a wide variety of other materials from EDUCAUSE and other sources.
