Last night in an absolutely thrilling football game that kept fans everywhere on the edge of their seats, Ohio State and Notre Dame universities once again showcased their athletic prowess in front of 80,000 fans and a national television audience. Truly, it was fun to watch!
However, the excellence displayed on the football field is not the only arena where Ohio State and Notre Dame shine. Both of these R1 universities are known for their commitment to cutting edge research, and protecting sensitive data is paramount in support of their academic and research pursuits.
This is where Virtru comes into play -- with both institutions utilizing our robust data-centric security solutions to foster efficient collaboration among researchers, while simultaneously enabling compliance with stringent data privacy regulations including the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) and International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR).
So, as I sit here drinking my cup of coffee the morning after watching an incredible football game, I find myself reflecting on the following:
In a world where football generates massive revenue for universities, it's obvious why schools everywhere seek to perform their best. And, in a world where data breaches are on the rise and federal regulators are holding research universities accountable, the importance of securing sensitive information cannot be overstated.
Ohio State and Notre Dame universities exemplify an unwavering commitment to excellence, both on the football field -- and also on the cyber risk landscape. Together, they set a shining example of how innovative research can thrive while prioritizing data security and compliance in an increasingly digital world.
