Webinar | Evaluating Technology Vendors: Best Practices for Privacy and Data Security

This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry & Campus Solutions series.

In this digital age, higher education institutions are evaluating an increasing number of new technologies within online and hybrid learning environments. But are they doing all they can to ensure their technology partners are meeting security and privacy standards?

This webinar will guide you through what security really means in 2022 and how the confidentiality-integrity-availability (CIA) triad plays an important role in evaluating security. Additionally, you’ll learn how to assess your technology partners for secure practices and how to identify vendors that are actively fostering a security-first culture.

By the end of this entertaining and informative presentation, you will have the information you need to ensure that all of your third-party technology meets the highest security and privacy standards.


  • Formulate a clear picture of what security in the higher education space means
  • Develop a game plan for assessing technology vendors before implementing
  • Establish a set of guidelines to ensure the technology vendor shares the same security-first culture as your institution
