The Ultimate Guide to Incident Management for Higher Education

Published February 28, 2019

According to the National Center for Education Statistics, there are 18.5 on-campus crimes for every 10,000 full-time-equivalent students.

Colleges and universities don’t have the luxury of a “wait and see” mentality. Not with faculty, staff, students, and community members all relying on you to be ready. They need you to be on the ball so that you can respond quickly and effectively, minimize damage, and get things up and running again.

That’s why we’ve put together the Ultimate Guide to Incident Management for Higher Education to help you become more proactive, rather than reactive, when it comes to protecting what matters.

In this guide, you’ll learn about:

  • The scope and scale of how incidents affect higher education institutions: Did you know by 2027, undergraduate enrollment in the U.S. is projected to increase to 17.4 million students?
  • The evolution of the Clery Act, how it holds institutions of higher education accountable for student safety, and the importance of compliance.
  • How an investment in security software can help transform your security team from one that is reactionary, to one that is risk-aware and able to reduce the impact of incidents before they happen.
