As educational institutions invest heavily in technology, the need for network security is dramatically increasing. Canaudit’s experience working with complex networks helps promote the growth of knowledge without hindering connectivity, interaction and the sharing of information.
The demand for connectivity in education poses many security risks. Schools not only house sensitive data relating to their student body, they also have unique network security demands. Educational institutions are faced with protecting valuable research data, patents, financial information and intellectual property, as well as student health information, all while allowing campus internet access.
At Canaudit, we can help an institution improve its security stance through internet vulnerability assessments, web application security reviews, network vulnerability assessments and more.
We are passionate about education, in transferring skills and helping others nurture their own. Educators turn to us to help them control access while they work to expand connectivity in academics.
Regulatory standards concerning educational institutions may include FISMA, FERPA, PCI-DSS and other federal or state mandates. Related security frameworks or standards may include ISO/IEC 27001 or 27002 and NIST SP800-53.
