Over the past ten years, advances in technology have allowed institutional leaders access to a wealth of new information to help guide decision making. While technology has provided valuable information to help the institution, its ability to cripple an institution is just as great, if not greater. At the end of the day, buildings can be repaired, classes rescheduled, systems restored from tape, but a security breach of your student/alumni data will damage your institution’s relationship with its students and alumni possibly causing them financial harm through identity theft. The loss of trust between the university and its student body will take years to repair.

This workshop will present multiple case studies on how institutions are dealing with the challenge of securing an “open campus” and protecting their data.

We would be grateful if you would pass this announcement on to friends and colleagues who might find it of interest.
