About the Guide

The Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) supports higher education institutions as they improve information security governance, compliance, data protection, and privacy programs. This guide, created by practitioners for practitioners, features toolkits, case studies, effective practices, and recommendations to help jump-start campus information security programs and initiatives. Don't reinvent the wheel – get all of the resources you need here.


As a community-driven, community-serving project, it is important for this guide to incorporate experiences and perspectives from many different institutions. To contribute examples of practices that have been effective in your institution, please consider submitting a case study or contact security-council@educause.edu.
