A Model for Today: Partnering with Industry to Enhance Institutional Information Security Capabilities

Tuesday, April 16 | 3:15PM–4:00PM | Gateway II
Session Type: Professional Development
Many academic organizations are facing the same problems: an aging decentralized computing infrastructure, growing use of mobile devices, increasing use of network resources, and ever-present external threats. To keep pace with growing security risks, higher education organizations must implement state-of-the-art core security components, enabling them to understand information security risks holistically and provide support for teaching, learning, and research. Join representatives of the Rochester Institute of Technology and McAfee as they discuss their partnership and how it's helping RIT use McAfee solutions to provide countermeasures and controls to understand and defend against the current and future threats.
