Risk and Compliance Assessments

Discover why Florida Institute of Technology joined forces with OculusIT! Introducing our recent collaboration, delivering top-tier Vulnerability Assessment Services. Protecting institutions from cyber threats, ensuring uninterrupted operations with unmatched precision and care.


Risk and compliance assessment services for higher education institutions evaluate regulatory adherence, security measures, and operational vulnerabilities. They aim to ensure institutional integrity, legal compliance, and mitigate risks such as data breaches or regulatory fines, safeguarding the institution’s reputation and fostering a secure learning environment for students and staff.

Why Risk and Compliance Assessments from OculusIT?

The growth of global regulations, including the Gramm Leach Bliley Act (GLBA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), requires higher education institutions to become more diligent with ensuring their schools remain compliant with the ever-changing landscape. Failure to comply with regulations can lead to harsh penalties, including multi-million dollar fines, criminal charges, and the revocation of licenses. We’ve found compliance to be difficult for institutions to manage on top of existing IT and security measures.

OculusIT’s team of industry-leading compliance experts are here to help. Our professionals not only understand the intricacies of these regulations, but they identify institutional risks and deliver the strategy for full compliance. Assessments reflect compliance risks that have the greatest potential for legal, financial, and operational implications. Upon alignment, we deploy the necessary resources to mitigate risks and save your institution from reputational damage.

We help higher ed institutions achieve GLBA compliance to protect students’ data against risks and unauthorized access.

GDPR Compliance

If your higher education institution collects, stores, or processes data of students, alumni, vendors, or community partners from the European Union (EU), your institution must be GDPR-compliant.
