To make the most of the Cybersecurity and Privacy Professionals Conference, spend some of your time speaking with people who share your interests, ambitions and concerns. Don’t miss this opportunity to tap into the collective knowledge of the higher education information security and privacy community. But how do you spark those meaningful conversations? It all starts with a braindate.
What is a braindate?
Virtual braindates are one-on-one or small group knowledge-sharing conversations that you book with other conference participants using the Braindate platform. They’re the best way to meet with, learn from, and have useful discussions with new people during the conference—all virtually.
Using the Braindate platform, you can share your interests in the form of Topics that can lead to interactive virtual discussions, and you can browse the Topics of other attendees and join them.
- Log in to book your braindates as soon as the Virtual Braindate platform is launched in late-May.
- Once the Cybersecurity and Privacy Professionals Conference begins, you’ll connect with your braindates virtually through video chat, directly on the Braindate platform. Our Learning Concierges will be available via chat to assist you!
Here's how it works:
1. Create your own topics so that others can invite you on a braindate!
2. Explore the topic market and pick something you want to learn, 1:1 or in a group.
3. Join group braindates or propose times to meet for one-on-one braindates.
4. Meet your peers on the platform. You can join video up to 5 minutes before it starts.
