WHY THIS MATTERS:
Embracing a balanced approach to IT systems can help curb institutional cyberrisks, according to Mary McKee, Duke University's identity management and security services director. “You don’t want to get into a situation where people are expecting the perimeter to provide too much security, like, we’re gonna put all of our sensitive things in here — but then once you’re in here to get one thing, now you have access to all the things,” notes McKee.
