Collaborative Insurance and Technology Savings

SREB partners with the Midwestern Higher Education Compact to bring cost containment strategies to SREB states. 

Any education institution or agency in SREB member states may elect to participate in these following cost-saving opportunities.


MHEC Cyber Insurance

The MHEC Cyber Insurance approach analyzes the institution’s threat environment, assesses the significance of the vulnerabilities in security controls, and determines how much financial exposure the institution faces. MHEC’s approach can also provide benchmarking on how much cyber coverage institutions of similar risk are buying.

MHECtech Technology Purchasing

This technology purchasing program seeks to leverage the combined volume of campuses in member states by negotiating favorable agreements with technology vendors. Contracts are only entered into when they provide institutions with discounts they are unlikely to find in other arenas. As a result, MHEC contracts provide significant savings.
