Higher Ed’s Top Security Experts are at your Fingertips

Finding a Chief Information Security Officer for your school doesn’t have to be stressful or costly.

The recent amendments to the GLBA Safeguard Rules now require higher ed institutions of all sizes to designate a dedicated individual as Chief Information Security Officer. But with the aftermath of COVID-19, budget cuts, and “the great resignation,” an individual who checks every box is difficult to come by. You need reliable security leadership and around the clock support from someone who deeply understands the unique challenges of higher ed technology without breaking your budget.

That’s where OculusIT comes in.

At OculusIT, our virtual CISO services provide you with a trusted leader and security strategies tailored for your institution. We offer one of higher education’s most cost-efficient vCISO shared services models that will transform your security profile. When you work with OculusIT, you benefit from a leader that proactively identifies vulnerabilities, helps your team establish and maintain best security practices, recommends the right technology to protect your institution’s IT operations, and more.

Your institution deserves the same level of security, attention, and intelligence as any large company. And this is one role you can’t afford to leave vacant.
