Information Security: A Perspective for Higher Education

Implementing robust information security standards for higher education requires not only a knowledge of the pertinent regulatory requirements but a practical approach to ensuring full compliance. NEC Unified Solutions can help your organization develop a Compliance Roadmap to identify regulatory requirements and evaluate how your organization measures up in each area. Such a roadmap can serve as a basis for designing an effective security program as well as the security architecture. This program will include policies, procedures, intrusion detection, virus control, auditing and assessments as well as metrics associated with the measurements of associated risk and risk remediation.
