The CDW-G Higher Education IT Security Report Card 2006 is CDW-G’s second annual survey of higher education IT professionals. CDW-G worked with Eduventures – a noted market research firm within the higher education market – to survey 182 higher education IT directors and managers to examine the challenges they face as they implement security programs on campus. This year’s report indicates that IT security is a major challenge at higher education institutions; 58 percent of respondents experienced at least one security incident in the last year. While IT directors and managers place a very high priority on improving IT security, they are often stretched for budget and resources.

CDW-G’s annual Teachers Talk Tech report has tracked and measured technology trends in education from the teacher’s perspective for the last four years. Once again, CDW-G employed Quality Education Data (QED), an industry leader in education market data, to survey more than 1,000 teachers to understand how technology is shaping education. The insight this year’s teachers provided shows technology-related professional development is changing the way they teach in dramatic ways.
