Meeting the CIS critical security controls: Using university-sponsored solutions when possible and other solutions when necessary

White, E. Meeting the CIS Critical Security Controls: Using University-Sponsored Solutions When Possible and Other Solutions When Necessary.

The university makes a number of security tools and systems available to UW staff. The UW Survey Center (UWSC) uses a variety of these tools to manage and secure their network and devices, along with the human subjects data they house. When campus-sponsored tools are not available other solutions are implemented. Eric will share the best practices, tools, and policies used to secure UWSC’s infrastructure and ensure the privacy and confidentiality of its research participants. Topics covered will include network, server, and workstation security and maintenance; cloud storage and collaboration; encryption; mobile device management.
