Webinar | Putting the Cloud to Work: Three Perspectives on Leveraging the Cloud for IT Security

This webinar is a part of the EDUCAUSE Industry & Campus Solutions series.

Now more than ever, information technology services need to be nimble, efficient, and frugal in their response to cybersecurity initiatives across the organization. Whether in response to distance learning, remote workforce initiatives, or the general "belt tightening" that many organizations are experiencing, leveraging cloud-based security solutions and services could help your organization "do more with less."

Join Jon Allen (Associate VP, CIO, and CISO, Baylor University), Michael Quiner (CIO, Information Services, Linn-Benton Community College), and Larry Schwarberg (Vice President, Information Security, University of Phoenix) as they share their perspectives on effectively utilizing cloud-based security solutions. Our panelists will discuss their own unique journeys to the cloud and the lessons learned along the way.


  • Learn how to identify which security programs are candidates for the cloud and why
  • Understand the process of evaluating cloud vendors and security solutions
  • Understand how to navigate cultural, political, and technical stakeholders in order to "sell" the cloud internally
  • Learn about the obvious (and less obvious) returns on investment from leveraging the cloud
