Case Study

Most college and university technology leaders have similar questions about their cybersecurity programs.

As a CIO or CISO at a college or university, you probably have questions you need answered to support your institution’s cybersecurity program. We understand the challenges that you face, and we’ve developed solutions to help you find the answers you need.

Here’s how we help you get answers to the most common questions we hear when talking with higher education leaders:

How mature is my cybersecurity?

Our online assessment tools help you evaluate your cybersecurity program, build an inventory of cybersecurity solutions you rely on, and identify areas needing improvement.

What capabilities does my institution need?

We help you compare your cybersecurity capabilities against frameworks like NIST 800-171 to reduce the time and effort your team needs to spend completing assessments.

How should I prioritize new investments?

Our planning tools help you prioritize potential new investments in cybersecurity based on your current capabilities, compliance needs, and more

What solutions can help reach my goals?

We help map your current and potential new cybersecurity solutions to create a holistic cyber resilience strategy and investment plan for your institution.

What solutions are my peers using?

We help you research solutions that are used at other colleges and universities so you can make informed decisions about your own cybersecurity investments.

How does my program compare to peers?

We help you benchmark your capabilities against other colleges and universities so you have data to compare your program and track progress over time.

We help you get answers quickly so you can get back to leading your cybersecurity program.

Many CIOs and CISOs we meet with express frustration about how much time and effort their security teams spend completing cybersecurity audits and assessments. We designed our tools to streamline the assessment process and remove common obstacles so you can get back to managing security again!
