The Technologies, Operations, and Practices (TOP) Working Group focuses on identifying and promoting practices, tools, and procedures that higher education institutions have found to be practical solutions to preventing or responding to security problems, with an emphasis on technology and process solutions. TOP members meet on the third Friday each month (12-1 pm ET). New volunteers are welcome!
