Subject: Securing the eCampus 2010: July 19-21 @ Dartmouth College


For the past three years CIOs, CISOs and other academic IT leaders have 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 4th Annual “Securing the eCampus” conference and invite you to join us this year in discussing the unique challenges of cyber security in academia and what it takes to build a culture of security at your institution.


The first day of the conference will offer something new to participants. At no additional cost, eCampus will offer two training seminars on a first come, first served basis (the first 25 RSVPs will be admitted).  The two training seminars offered are:

  • Into the Cloud: A hands-on workshop exploring the pros and cons of hosting servers in public, private, and hybrid Clouds.
  • Data Driven Security: A different approach to determining security requirements.

Registration for these training seminars is included in the overall conference registration.

Day two will feature our traditional offering of presentations from leaders in the information security field. This year we will offer presentations on privacy, regulations and policy, security awareness, cybercrime, and cyberwar in addition to panels on cloud computing. Our presenters include:


  • Executive Director of the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) Michael Kaiser;
  • Author, attorney, educational consultant, and expert witness Frederick Lane;
  • EDUCAUSE Vice President for Policy and Analysis Gregory Jackson;
  • Microsoft Research's Cormac Herley;
  • Technologist, entrepreneur, and international security expert Matthew Devost; and 
  • Attorney Ray Beckerman
  • as well as panel discussions on cloud computing featuring leaders from the legal and academic communities


The third day will include break-out sessions that allow participants to discuss specific topic areas in smaller groups and in a more informal setting. Topics will range from e-discovery for higher education, emerging technical threats, hacker tools and the hacker curriculum, and social networking and the student.  The conference will begin with the optional seminars on the afternoon of Monday, July 19th and will conclude on the afternoon of July 21st.  

Details on the conference and registration information can be found on our website at: and on NERCOMP's (the Northeast Regional Computing Program) "Upcoming Events" page.


The registration fee for the conference is $125 and includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and a networking event on July 20th, breakfast, lunch and snacks on July 21st, and attendance at one of the optional seminars on July 19th (first come, first served).
