In part one of this two-part series, we discussed the rising need for better cybersecurity practices on campus. Cybersafety ties into campus safety in general. Let's ask a few more questions and offer a couple of solutions.
University administrators should know whether their cyber providers have met industry wide conformance benchmarks. They should also ask the manufacturer if it releases its vulnerability data. That way, campus officials can remedy dangerous shortcomings right away.
Campus officials should work together with systems integrators and manufacturers to promote a comprehensive cybersecurity plan. Transfer of knowledge and strong training is essential.
It's also a good idea to leverage emergency notification displays. The best of these will provide clear information and instruction during a security breach without faltering during the attack.
