Education / K-12, Colleges, and Universities
So many competing interests, so little budget and expertise. We’ve been there, literally (our CEO is a former college professor).
K-12 must juggle shrinking budgets, an increasingly competitive market for talent, conflicting interests of parents-with-educators, parents-with-administrators, educators-with-administrators, parents-with-other-parents, etc… while remembering the thousands of inquisitive minds getting older and wiser each day, learning and prepared to test the boundaries of every rule, roadblock, and barrier put in place. It can seem hopeless, but it isn’t. And we can’t fix it all, but we’ll help where we can.
We work to create layered, segmented, and enclave architectures that allow your seemingly conflicted IT needs and requirements can work together. We help to develop strategies that ‘thread the needle’ between open access to information that encourages learning and critical thinking, while addressing the need to protect and secure certain information from unauthorized access.
Meanwhile, the deadline for colleges and universities to fully comply with the GLBA Safeguards Rule 2023 (16 CFR Part 314) is just around the corner, but we also know that the complexity and unusual nature of college and university campuses and schools continues to create complicated webs for addressing compliance regulations. We have the experience of addressing ‘difficult’ IT infrastructures and establishing secure and controlled network segmentation while respecting the historical and inherent open nature of academia.
