Higher Education Security Workshop


Colleges and universities are being pressured to increase their ability to serve faculties and students by providing unrestricted, high bandwidth access and services to anyone on or around campus. In many cases, this requires re-architecting networks and data centers to anticipate known and unknown threats, varied user types, unknown devices and new applications.

Join is to discuss how to meet these demands and deploy new technologies (cloud, mobile, online course delivery and virtualization etc.) without compromising security, scalability or performance.

Topics covered will include:

- How to secure sensitive information of students, faculty, alumni and staff as well as academic research and financial transactions 
- URL filtering requirements in Higher Education 
- Enabling cloud, social media and peer-to-peer usage 
- Securing Software as a Service: CASB or not CASB? That is the question 
- How to secure a public infrastructure environment 
- Securing applications in software defined networking
