Information security in colleges and universities is a complex, multi-dimensional challenge that is shaped by a range of policy and practice
issues.  ISAI is working closely with a number of universities, research organizations, and federal agencies to develop a suite of solutions
that will raise the bar of information security standards for academic institutions.

We are fortunate to partner with several academic institutions and research organizations focusing on the issues facing America's
colleges and universities.  Several organizations that specialize in information technology and public safety are providing cutting-edge
analysis of and solutions to issues facing academic institutions.  Additionally, a number of federal agencies are sharing their cutting-edge
policies and practices to ensure the maximum impact of this study's results and recommendations.  

We welcome additional alliances and partnerships with other organizations that share our mission to help universities and strengthen our
critical infrastructure and public safety.   If you work at a university, research organization, or federal agency and would like to become
involved in our project, please contact our Executive Director, Dr. Steffani Burd, at or at (917) 783-8496.
