The EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council
The EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council (formerly the Security Task Force) was established in July 2000. The Council is working to improve security awareness among the EDUCAUSE and Internet2 memberships and throughout higher education. The Information Security Council actively promotes effective practices and solutions for the protection of information assets and critical infrastructures. The Information Security Council is coordinating its efforts on behalf of institutions of higher education by partnering with the American Council on Education, Association of American Universities, National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges, American Association of State Colleges and Universities, National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, and the American Association of Community Colleges.
The Network Council (NC) is an advisory body that considers policy issues that affect campus, regional, and national networks and helps EDUCAUSE advocate thoughtfully and effectively regarding network issues. The council engages on issues and concerns that may impact the future of networking, both at the college and university level and policy issues related to national and regional networks. The council communicates frequently and holds regular meetings. Additionally, the entire Network Council meets in person at the EDUCAUSE Annual Conference.
