Colleges and universities have become a favorite target of cybercriminals because of the sheer volume of student information they handle—and the fact that payment processing happens all over campus, from the ticketing office to the bursar’s office to the cafeteria. In addition to endangering students and damaging the reputation of the institution, the financial costs of a data breach could include legal representation, fines, and the expense of notifying affected individuals.

Transforming finance to meet the challenges of processing more information efficiently and turning that information into deeper insights is an organizational imperative. These transformation initiatives are also focused on minimizing non-value add work, decreasing reporting cycle time and improving collaboration.

This webcast discussed how finance teams are turning to the cloud and digital tools to address these challenges and take their processes into the future.
