Where is Your Student Data Stored and How Is It Being Secured?

Monday, April 1
9:15-10:15 am
Session ID: 5291

Registrars and enrollment managers play central roles in an institution’s cybersecurity posture. The choices they make each day directly affect student data security. It is imperative that they are in lockstep with the IT department with respect to the institution’s cybersecurity efforts, to guard against cyber threats. Also, if administrators are using third-party vendors, where is student data stored and how is it being secured? If you don’t know, it’s time to find out. Join us for an information security panel where we ask the experts.

More than ever, learners are investing in their future by acquiring knowledge, skills and competencies via many different avenues, including — increasingly — non-traditional means. Join the National Student Clearinghouse as we reveal the market needs and trends that gave birth to the Comprehensive Learner Record (CLR). You’ll learn how the Clearinghouse will support learners long term through aggregated, secure, and sharable records. We’ll also answer questions on enabling and supporting the CLR, security, and the influence of blockchain.
