We've Already Changed the Game: UC's Security Policy Architecture

Wednesday, May 15 | 9:15AM–10:15AM CT | Vevey 4, Second Floor Event Centre
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Effective security policy architecture allows for adaptations and creates a culture of compliance. Policy is about more than just what to do and what not to do. Its architecture—or the framework that helps it adapt to changes and the needs of an organization—is part of what makes it work well. At UC, it was on observing the cultural shift in conversations about security compliance that we realized the effectiveness of our policy architecture. As the adoption process started, people were talking about a plan for compliance. A cultural shift accompanied our policy change because of our policy architecture.

Outcomes: Learn about popular approaches to security policy and about the experience of a large R1 university's experience developing and implementing a new approach * Find out more about our adoption process
