Got the Compliance Blues? How to More Effectively Influence Your Policy Landscape

Wednesday, March 25 | 10:30AM–11:15AM | King Arthur's Court/Third Floor
Session Type: Professional Development

Legal and policy issues are increasingly a part of the IT leader's portfolio as colleges and universities strive to bring their institutions into compliance with state and federal laws and regulations. Enterprise compliance, however, is one of the last stages of the life cycle for policy issues that often begins when critical incidents or issues come to the attention of politicians and government officials. This session will describe how IT leaders can be more involved at each stage of the policy process life cycle, including the role of policy analysis and advocacy, and will propose strategies and approaches for proactively addressing issues before they become legal mandates.
