Trusteeship Podcast Episode 26: Cyber Risk Oversight for Higher Education Boards


Aired: January 21, 2022

Cyberattacks on colleges, universities, and foundations have become more frequent, more sophisticated, and more dangerous. Governing boards must recognize that these are enterprise-level risks, not simply an IT issue. AGB’s new publication, Cyber Risk Oversight for Higher Education Boards, developed in partnership with the Internet Security Alliance (ISA) and American International Group, Inc. (AIG), provides governing boards with five core principles that boards need to oversee their institution’s cybersecurity.

In this podcast, Morgan State University President David Wilson, EdD., and Internet Security Alliance President Larry Clinton discuss with former AGB President Henry Stoever Cyber Risk Oversight for Higher Education Boards and what higher-education governing boards need to understand in order to adequately and successfully oversee their institution’s cybersecurity.
