This discussion session is your opportunity to bring your hot topic or current issue before a group of your peers for discussion and collaboration. Possible topics include managing policy and security challenges and solutions related to cloud computing, BYOD, social media, privacy and fair information practices, and digital identities, as well as other emerging issues. EDUCAUSE Policy staff and representatives of the Campus Policy Advisory Group and the Higher Education Information Security Council will also be on hand to listen and share relevant resources.


One school used policy to endorse certain Clouds by contracts. University protected info for them. Others at own risk. #EDU12 #E12_UPD01

Data classification can help address a lot of different policy issues. Especially with Cloud and BYOD. #E12_UPD01 #EDU12

3 classifications keep popping up in HigherEd. Public, Protected and Sensitive. Though Protected tends to be largest. #EDU12 #E12_UPD01

Some schools are using 4 classifications. 4th is based on Regs (FERPA, etc.) because of specific requirements. #EDU12 #E12_UPD01

Data Classification Toolkit from @HEISCouncil. #EDU12 #E12_UPD01

Policies should be around the data not where it sits. #EDU12 #E12_UPD01

Mobile devices are like reproducing rabbits that IT can't control. Should we treat them as hostile? Know your enemy. #EDU12 #E12_UPD01

Also check out UMich's Sensitive Regulated Data: Permitted & Restricted Uses standard: #E12_UPD01 #EDU12

Data shouldn't be mobile. Instead access to data should be mobile. May prevent data leakage. #EDU12 #E12_UPD01
