Evolving Attack Methodologies Observed in Higher Ed and Lessons Learned:As organizational information security programs mature and the cybersecurity arms race continues, many organizations are starting to see attacks with increasing levels of sophistication. This BOF session is designed to allow institutions to share war stories, observed attack techniques, lessons learned, and effective defense strategies against some of these more advanced attacks. The Vegas rule applies in this session: anything shared in the room stays in the room.

Internet2 NET+ Security and Identity Portfolio: Building a Portfolio with the Community, for the Community:The Internet2 NET+ initiative has included trust- and identity-related service providers in coordination with InCommon since the NET+ program started. Information security is integrated into the service-validation process using the CSA CCM. Internet2 is expanding the initiative to increase the information security–related services available and starting to engage with the higher education information security community. Please join us to share suggestions on new service providers, provide feedback on existing providers, or ask questions about the NET+ initiative.

Ivy-Plus (7:00-10:00 p.m.): All colleagues from an Ivy-Plus institution are welcome to join us for one of our semiannual gatherings of Ivy-Plus security and privacy professionals. We will be meeting at a local restaurant (TBD) for a night of reconnecting, getting to know new colleagues, and talking about our roles and lives on an Ivy-Plus campus. See any of the Ivy-Plus CISOs at the conference for more details, and plan on meeting in the hotel lobby at 6:45 on Tuesday night.
