On the Defense: How Higher Education Institutions Can Significantly Reduce Data Breaches with the SANS 20: White Paper

Approximately one-third of colleges and universities have experienced a significant data breach in the last ten years. As a result, many institutions are conducting external data security audits and increasing security controls. The System Administration, Networking, and Security (SANS) Institute has developed a 20-point checklist of critical security controls that represent the gold standard for a comprehensive data security plan. This white paper discusses how the Institute’s recommendations, combined with the right technology, can help you implement the optimum data security strategy.
