Data Security and Compliance
Higher education institutions, both public and private, are facing unprecedented challenges. Institutions are under increasing pressure to provide a better quality service whilst managing the rising costs of operations and shrinking budgets. Education is all about data – student, financial aid, administrative, syllabi, curriculum, assessment, grades and much, much more. Data growth is becoming a serious issue for IT due to its data retention policies. Huge amount of data is being kept by different lines of business within the higher education sector. Colleges and universities have thousands of annual enrollments, yet never archive student data. BTRG can help improve your information economics strategy, by lowering information cost and reduce risk.
The higher education sector has also been a high profile target of data breaches in the recent years. Not only are data breaches comparatively frequent at colleges and universities, they can be extremely large. As the cost of data breaches continues to rise, it is clear that the higher education industry need to act urgency to ensure data privacy and protection.
