Show More

Vancord is a CT-based cybersecurity company that was built around the idea that good security starts with sound operational practices and education, not complicated products and solutions.

Our team’s cybersecurity expertise is what makes Vancord unique in understanding the challenges faced by higher education institutions.  Each one of our highly experienced engineers has worked, on average, 10-20 years in the higher ed industry.  During that time, they have served on various committees and working groups such as REN-ISAC, the NERCOMP Board of Directors, and the Connecticut Higher Education Roundtable for Information Security (CHERIS).  Over the past two years Vancord has had the privilege of working with many colleges and universities, proactively identifying security risks before they become security issues.  You can read more about our senior security engineers here:

Vancord’s security experts bring extensive knowledge of information security program development, vulnerability management, incident response, disaster recovery and business continuity, application and network penetration testing, identity management, security awareness training and security policy development.

We can help you develop and maintain a sound cybersecurity strategy that reduces potential exposure to security incidents, mitigates and reduces recovery time if danger strikes, while becoming more diligent and deliberate as an organization in your approach to cybersecurity.

Legal Note:

NERCOMP negotiates the best prices and terms possible for its members and works with outside legal counsel to facilitate the arrangements between NERCOMP and the vendors. Outside counsel conducts an initial legal review of licenses and agreements on behalf of NERCOMP but does not provide an individualized review on behalf of any particular member institution.

Each member institution signs its contracts with vendors individually and the institution itself is liable for the rights and obligations therein. Members are strongly encouraged to have their contracts reviewed internally by their own counsel.

In addition, NERCOMP often negotiates separate agreements with vendors governing NERCOMP’s own relationship to the vendor. Although NERCOMP members are not parties to these agreements, NERCOMP will make copies of available to any member for review, upon request.

Archival materials on this site are not necessarily accessible. NERCOMP will timely respond to any specific requests to make any specific document accessible.
