The 2024 Cybersecurity and Privacy Professionals Conference is taking place in Minneapolis, MN, May 1–3.

This is the premier forum to showcase your brand, latest solutions, and industry expertise, and connect with hundreds of higher education cybersecurity and privacy professionals, including chief information security and privacy officers, CIOs, and other senior IT professionals from across the nation.

New for 2024: Because of the popularity of this event, there will be an order in which past-participants and other interested companies may purchase participation opportunities (selection will be based on member status and cumulative spend over the past three years of participation in the Cybersecurity and Privacy Professionals Conference, sorted high to low for members; nonmember selection will take place after members, if available). Selections will begin in mid-January based on the order above.


All opportunities come with a complimentary attendee address list of those that opt in to receive a promotional piece from your organization. The list is provided upon request by your organization's primary logistics contact once your promotional piece has been reviewed and approved by EDUCAUSE. Sponsorships come with additional benefits (noted below).

Industry Insights Presentations (Limited Availability) Sold

Our corporate community is invited to conduct presentations on future directions, best practices, stories of successful collaborations, or solutions to community-wide issues within various program tracks.

These 45-minute presentations must be educational in nature and conducted in partnership with at least one presenter from a higher education institution or via a small, diverse panel-type session with four presenters/panelists max.

Conference Theme

Reducing Friction While Embracing Shifting Landscapes. Learn, explore, and share ways to address cybersecurity and privacy challenges across higher education.

Conference Tracks

Policies that surround cybersecurity and privacy are becoming more complex as governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) issues are on the increase in higher education information technology. This track will encompass areas of leadership, organizational compliance and operation of an institution's GRC programs now and in the future.

This track will explore the ways privacy enables individuals and organizations through privacy programs, assessment of privacy risk, use of privacy engineering and embedding privacy by design, and the role privacy plays in the effective governance and management of data.

Cybersecurity awareness, training, education, and communications are critical components of successful information security and privacy programs. The Cybersecurity Awareness and Training Conference Track is a specialized segment within our conference that delves deep into the strategies, tactics, and methodologies necessary for creating and managing cybersecurity and privacy awareness programs that genuinely empower faculty, staff, and students. This track seeks to answer the pressing questions of how to not only build and staff these programs but also strategically operate them while avoiding the pitfalls of superficial compliance to meet cyber liability insurance requirements.

What best practices and technologies shape your privacy and cybersecurity operations? This track allows you to share what you are doing to prevent, detect, assess, monitor, and respond to cybersecurity threats, privacy violations, and incidents. Share the strategies for cybersecurity and privacy controls and safeguards that are being implemented at your institution to protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of institutional data.

Today's cybersecurity and privacy workforce requires continuous learning and professional development at all levels. This track allows you to share ideas and best practices for shaping and developing the next generation of our workforce, as well as sustaining, retaining, training, and creating leadership opportunities for current employees. We also want to hear about your ideas on recruiting new talent and supporting diversity, equity, inclusion, and belong among your teams.

Please note: If you submitted a presentation proposal through the call for proposals process, EDUCAUSE will be in touch in late-February with information regarding acceptance of your proposal. (Call for proposals will close January 29.)
