IT Security: The State of the Practice in Higher Education
Thursday, November 6, 2003
In the spring of 2003, the EDUCAUSE Center for Applied Research (ECAR) launched a major study of IT security in higher education. Nearly 500 colleges and universities responded to the ECAR quantitative survey, and several institutions were profiled in depth. The survey also incorporated IT security surveys from a variety of external sources, making possible interesting comparisons of security practices in academe and out. This study and session also incorporate substantial qualitative information and insights gleaned from detailed case studies of MIT, Indiana University, and the University of Washington.
This presentation was also given at the 2003 ECAR Symposium.
