How Higher Ed Can Prepare for the U.S. Department of Education’s Cybersecurity Audit Requirements and Enforcement

An Interface Series Webinar


This program is part of a monthly webinar series hosted by Faegre Drinker’s privacy, cybersecurity and data strategy (PCDS) team. Each session will open with a 360-degree overview of PCDS and IT news developments from around the world, followed by a deep dive on a significant legal issue impacting clients. Speakers include a who’s who of the industry, from Faegre Drinker attorneys to technology, operations and regulatory experts.

While much of the ongoing cultural dialogue around higher education has focused on fall reopening plans, there is another concern looming large for higher education leaders: the U.S. Department of Education’s recently enacted requirements for auditing of institutions’ compliance with GLBA cybersecurity standards. How can institutions ensure their cybersecurity frameworks ladder up to the requirements and address the particular GLBA standards now subject to audit? And what steps can organizations take to avoid or mitigate enforcement actions? Faegre Drinker Partner Jonathan Tarnow and Crowe Consulting Principal Michael Del Giudice will tackle these questions and more. Guests will walk away with a firmer understanding of the decision-making process behind the new requirements, as well as practical advice on how to operationally approach this important subject matter.
