We work with the some of the country's leading institutions to identify risk, uncover vulnerabilities and build security programs that keep them safe. On and off campus.
Key Challenges We Solve
We help have experience helping higher education institutions solve:
Staying Safe During
Remote Teaching & Learning
COVID-19 has introduced new security risks with remote access and learning. In such challenging times, we provide institutions strong oversight on the cyber-threat landscape & leadership on protection.
for Staff & Students
Our experts deliver interactive sessions to employees on trending security topics that feature the latest threats combined with simulated phishing exercises to help build an effective ‘human firewall’ against cyberattacks.
Navigate & Meet
Compliance requirements are increasingly focused on employee training. We can help build a program that can help you meet compliance mandates.
Our Higher Education Security Services
We consult clients through the following security initiatives:
Risk Assessments & Security Reviews
Towerwall security assessments are designed to provide insights into your cyber-risk exposure so that you can build an effective defense. Our assessments take a deep dive into systems, processes, and security approaches to identify any vulnerabilities that may have gone undetected, underestimated, or overlooked.
Program & Policy Development
Implementing a robust cybersecurity policy reduces your risk of a cyber-attack and prepares you to respond appropriately should an attack occur; it’s also a critical step in achieving compliance and planning for disaster recovery and business continuity.
Incident Response & Remediation
Cybersecurity incidents are inevitable. An incident response plan helps create a foundation for handling such incidents – from early detection to recovery.
Compliance & Privacy
Along with navigating through a complex cybersecurity landscape, businesses can potentially face significant penalties for lack of meeting compliance mandates. Towerwall can help create a foundation for protection and compliance, both now and for the long-term.
We focus on key compliance regulations, such as:
- PCI Compliance
- HIPAA Compliance
- Gramm–Leach–Bliley Act (HLBA) Compliance
- GDPR Compliance
Comprehensive Security Training
Since 95% of all breaches are caused by human error, it’s important that employees recognize their responsibility, practice good cyber hygiene, and develop skills to recognize online scams, phishing attacks and social engineering tactics. Towerwall security experts can design an integrated security awareness training program and provide a simulated phishing service to help minimize your business risks.
With Towerwall’s vulnerability management program, you gain in-depth visibility into security threats that lurk in your network, devices, servers, web applications, and databases. We will then help you map out a strategy to ensure those gaps are closed.
Penetration testing explores existing weaknesses in your security infrastructure and reverse engineers the way a potential attacker might target your network and systems. We use the same tools that attackers use to identify areas of weakness; we then provide actionable steps to close those vulnerabilities and safeguard your business.
Leverage the experience and business acumen of Towerwall’s talent pool of security experts to perform tasks typically assigned to an in-house Chief Information Security Officer. For example, building structure, governance and processes for risk management, data privacy and compliance initiatives; assigning security roles and responsibilities to IT teams and providing technical and security consultancy to senior management and Board.
