The 2018 Security Professionals Conference Mentoring Program is free and supports the EDUCAUSE Cybersecurity Program's diverse community, from senior leaders to those new to the higher ed infosec or privacy profession and everyone in between.
Attendees interested in participating can sign up for the mentoring program during the registration process. Once your registration is confirmed, you will receive a brief set of questions from EDUCAUSE staff in order to help us find the best possible match. Participants will be introduced via email prior to the conference and provided more information about next steps, which include organizing a one-on-one meeting at the conference in Baltimore (April 10–12, 2018).
Please note: The 2018 mentoring program has reached capacity, so the option to sign up is no longer available on the registration form.
Several strategic leadership and professional development sessions, as well as community building opportunities, are included in the conference program. Anyone participating in the 2018 mentoring program is encouraged to attend these sessions.
If you are not able to attend this year's event, we hope you'll participate next year at the 2019 Security Professionals Conference in Chicago, May 13–15, 2019!
If you have any questions, please contact [email protected].
