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 in Baltimore, MD, May 3–5 with a separate online component on May 11–12.

By registering for the in-person event you automatically gain access to the online event.

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 the higher education community. The conference will bring together our diverse and innovative community to share their knowledge and expertise with one another.
  • Budget-Friendly. If you can’t make it to the in-person conference, the online conference held May 11–12 is a great alternative to revisit recorded sessions from the live event, take a deep dive into different topics as you chat with presenters, and connect with your colleagues over virtual Braindates.
