HEISC Governance, Risk, and Compliance Community Group

This EDUCAUSE community group is sponsored by the Higher Education Information Security Council. The purpose of this group is to provide a forum to discuss information security topics pertaining to governance, risk, privacy, policies, legal issues, and compliance. Participants are encouraged to collaborate and share effective practices and resources that help higher education institutions incorporate information security into the enterprise governance processes, implement information security risk management processes, and understand the implications of existing and proposed laws and industry standards on institutional policies and compliance.

The HEISC Governance, Risk, and Compliance CG meets on the third Tuesday of every month, 3:00–4:00 p.m. ET. The group’s co-chairs will send an email reminder to the CG list with call-in details and a request for agenda items prior to each monthly meeting. Please note that CG members are responsible for adding these monthly meetings to their calendars.
