Keys to protecting and managing your institutional,
student, and research data.
The importance of data is growing— in fact, many people state that data is now the most valuable asset an organization can have. In higher education, your operational readiness depends on data, though scale, security and sprawl are significant challenges.
EDUCAUSE recently published the “2023 Top 10 Issues”: #1 – A Seat at the Table, #2 – Privacy and Cybersecurity 101; #7 – Moving from Data Insight to Data Action. As with all the top 10 IT Issues, these clearly indicate the importance of strong leadership, strong governance, and increased use of data in a complex hybrid environment that defy task-specific and silo-specific structures.
We invite you to join a fireside chat with industry and education leaders as they dive into this changing environment and share what they are doing in 2023 to protect and manage their data.
