Last year CIOs, CISOs and other academic IT leaders met in Hanover, NH to discuss how information security has become a significant campus-wide concern and an institution-wide responsibility. We are pleased to announce the second annual “Securing the eCampus” conference and invite you to join us this year for an extended program in discussing the unique challenges of cyber security in academia and what it takes to build a culture of security at your institution.

The conference will begin on November 11th and will conclude on the afternoon of November 12th. Our main topics for discussion will include: strategic planning and decision making for information security in higher education, emerging trends in information security, data security and the unique challenges posed to academic institutions, and security awareness.
