Peer Assessment Service

Improve Your Cybersecurity Posture

REN-ISAC's Cybersecurity Peer Assessment Service can enable you and your institution to strengthen internal safeguards and mitigate possible risk. Our expert peer assessors understand the unique demands of cybersecurity in higher education, and they will provide you with an objective evaluation of your institution's current security standing.

The peer assessment process culminates in a professional report that includes National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-based, actionable recommendations; prioritized steps with a focus on scalability; suggestions for continuous process improvement; and a separate executive summary to encourage understanding and buy-in.
