How an Audit Led to an Opportunity for Partnership

Tuesday, May 14 | 4:00PM–5:00PM CT | Zurich Ballroom BC, First Floor Event Centre
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
You know those IT security audits that every state randomly performs on-site at state agencies each year? Well, Pittsburg State University in Pittsburg, Kansas, had the pleasure of enduring one of those last spring. What began as a routine audit was soon seen by our IT security officer and IT leadership as an opportunity to move the university in the right direction and not be the villain in the process.

Outcomes: Create an effective action plan to meet needed IT security improvements cited by an auditing body * Create an effective communication plan for campus IT team members, administration, and clients * Develop a culture of client partnerships versus policing
