Security Professional Services

Fortify your campus IT security posture

Student academic, financial, and health data, complex regulatory and policy compliance, and the rising cost and exacting requirements that must be met to obtain cyber insurance challenge the experience and expertise of campus IT teams. Uncertain revenue sources and decreasing budgets intensify the difficulty.

Close gaps in security expertise

Apogee Security Professional Services address the complexities of campus IT infrastructure and information security. In close collaboration with your IT team, our security experts help you protect critical student and research data while minimizing the impact of cyberattack.

Backed by Apogee real-world security experience and expertise, our Risk-based Security Assessments, Virtual CISO services, and Cybersecurity Incident Response Plans help your team thwart bad actors, stay ahead of an evolving threat landscape, and proactively manage through nearly any security incident.

For campus IT teams with little in-house security experience and expertise, limited budgets, and too many competing priorities or tasks, Apogee can help you immediately enhance your security posture, maximize infrastructure resilience, and preserve your campus reputation.
