IT leaders in higher education spend a lot of time focused on the new normal of increased demand, reduced resources, and constant change, but don't often invest much time on their career growth.



Two Conferences, One Day of Combined Sessions

The Enterprise IT Leadership and Security Professionals conferences were scheduled to have one half-day of combined sessions. These joint sessions gave IT leaders from both disciplines the opportunity to get to know each other better and discuss enterprise security issues.
