Cyber Risk Managment in
Higher Education

Over the years, academic institutions adopted many new and advanced digital and technological solutions to provide staff, students and alumni with better learning and communication experiences. 

Unfortunately, these advancements also introduce new vulnerabilities and attack vectors that can be exploited by threat actors and cause serious damage to these organizations and expose their students’ sensitive data as well. On average, higher-education data breaches cost 84% more compared to other industries. 

Today, in order to protect their organizations from such damages, higher-ed institutions are attempting to manage their cyber risk and compliance using outdated tools such as traditional GRC solutions and manual spreadsheets, which simply don’t cut it. As a result, cyber risk teams are dealing with hundreds of hours of unnecessary manual work and inefficient processes, causing frustration among the teams and a lack of clarity among executives..

The Centraleyes risk management platform enables higher-ed organizations to automate and orchestrate all of their cyber risk and compliance tasks, such as data collection, analysis and reporting, while following relevant industry leading frameworks like NIST, ISO, FERPA, HIPAA and HECVAT, all in a single pane of glass.
