SECURITY IN ELLUCIAN'S CLOUD
Campus information systems often house vast amounts of sensitive data. Should a data breach occur, the consequences for exposed individuals can be grave—and the financial and reputational damage to institutions can be severe. The EDUCAUSE Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) is driving colleges and universities towards developing “top-notch information security governance, compliance, data protection, and privacy programs.” In alignment with that initiative, Ellucian has developed a multilayered, comprehensive approach aligned with the standards of trusted security frameworks. This white paper reviews Ellucian’s current practices and industry standards for securing cloud-based systems and data—from rigorous independent compliance audits, penetration testing, and security reviews to logical and environmental security.
