Guiding higher education institutions in risk and compliance assessment within their existing ecosystems

As stakeholder expectations increase with the rise of global regulations, colleges and universities face negative implications if their institution fails to comply with required standards. Not only are there technical risks for higher education’s IT networks, but legal and financial penalties as well. Institutions must define their respective compliance risks and develop a roadmap to address these issues to ensure compliance with data regulations. We are here to help you identify and assess these potential gaps and implement best practices to ensure compliance is maintained.

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.
