University Risk Assessments

We begin every engagement by performing a comprehensive risk assessment custom-designed to identify specialized risks that colleges and universities may encounter. This assessment includes risks related to physical security, as well as critical information systems and the broader school. Many schools have major cybersecurity vulnerabilities and risks that they are unaware of. We rank these security risks as they relate to both likelihoods of occurrence and impact to the organization. Next, we present our findings and work to implement risk mitigation strategies to prevent disruption to critical infrastructure and reduce the risk of catastrophic outages.
