Higher education is one of the most regulated industries in America and comes under the top 5 most attacked spaces. The threat landscape is growing at a faster rate than most of our institutions can keep up with, and this is especially true for Institutions of Higher Education (IHEs). Therefore, it is strongly recommended that IHEs perform risk assessments at their campuses on a yearly basis.

Colleges and universities wondering how to obtain a GDPR Assessment should visit Campus Consortium Grant Programs. The GDPR Assessment Applications open on June 27th, 2018.

“Non-compliance with GDPR can be quite a hefty penalty, which we certainly do not want institutions to incur. We encourage both our member and non-member institutions to go through grants that can not only help them save cost but also, augment the campus with newer or enhanced solutions. The GDPR Assessment Grant aids all institutions with an opportunity to ensure they are data compliant”, states Anjli Jain, Chairman of Campus Consortium.

Through their various technology Grants, institutions receive funding to implement numerous products and services that will engage and contribute to the success of students, faculty and staff.
