Change Is Simply an Act of Survival: Securing Your Network Today and Into the Future

Tuesday, May 02 | 3:15PM–4:15PM | Penrose 1, Lower Level 1
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Industry and Campus Solutions
As higher education adopts SaaS and PaaS solutions, some would argue that, from a security perspective, the network is becoming irrelevant. With the proliferation of BYOD, Wi-FI, online engagement and online course delivery, more traffic is going directly to the Internet, bypassing the networks that were designed for security and controls. This session will explore this paradigm shift. We will discuss developments in malware and how threat actors have taken on a business approach to creation, distribution, and management of attack campaigns that can put your data and the privacy of your users at risk.

Discuss steps you can implement today to secure and optimize user access * Explore strategies you can start today to lay the groundwork for a more secure architecture in the future
