This session, ideal for financial aid administrators and information technology (IT) managers, will begin by providing a brief overview of federal IT security initiatives that impact postsecondary institutions (PSI). This session will identify best practices for data protection and identity theft, define what constitutes a breach, discuss common and not so common examples of breaches, describe how to report a breach to the Department of Education's Office of Federal Student Aid (FSA), and the steps FSA will take to work with a PSI once a breach is reported. This session will close with a question and answer period by FSA experts in cybersecurity.
