Jane LeClair, chief operating officer at the National Cybersecurity Institute at Excelsior College in Washington, DC, recently stressed the need for higher education to step up its game around IT security. And she urged colleges and universities that haven’t already done so to embrace the role of the chief information security officer, or CISO. LeClair appeared at the Campus Technology 2015 conference in Boston speaking on the topic “Cybersecurity at the C-Level: Preparing Future Leaders.’ While she discussed the need for more cybersecurity professionals at all levels of the organization, she stressed the growing demand for a single accountable IT security individual that can hold his or her own with other top executives in the organization.
