Join Us for the Cybersecurity and Privacy Professionals Conference

These are uncommon times, and we need uncommon thinking to confront the challenges of higher education IT. This is why the Cybersecurity and Privacy Professionals Conference is more important than ever. The conference will be held online over three days, June 8–10. Do you need a supervisor's approval to register?

We have some tips on how to convince them to provide the financial support to attend.

Reasons you should register:

  • Professional Learning. The conference has a variety of sessions to help you stay up-to-date with the latest trends in higher education cybersecurity and privacy. View the conference program and make a list of the sessions that would be beneficial to your professional growth and your organization.
  • Networking. You will have multiple ways to engage, learn, and connect with colleagues from around the world. The virtual conference will bring together our diverse and innovative community to share their knowledge and expertise with one another.
  • Budget-Friendly.The conference is 100% virtual this year, so there are no prohibitive accommodation and travel expenses...just register online and you're ready to go. Your investment also allows access to sessions for 8 weeks after the event.
