Information Security and Privacy Strategy Futures for Higher Education

Tuesday, April 16 | 12:30PM–1:15PM | Gateway II
Session Type: Professional Development
University security breaches are reported in our headlines on a regular basis. These security incidents may result in increasingly harsh regulatory sanctions and/or threaten public support of our teaching, research, and public service programs. Have higher education information security and privacy programs made sufficient progress? What types of security and privacy program initiatives could improve management of information threats within higher education? How could incentives ensure institutional participation so that lesser-resourced institutions can equally participate in and benefit from a broad higher education security program strategy? This session will explore these themes and offer suggestions for improvements for a national higher education security and privacy strategy.
