Examining the Current State of Mobile Security with EDUCAUSE

Join us on Thursday, April 28, for day 4 of the EDUCAUSE Mobile Computing 5-Day Sprint. Thursday's activities will focus on security, privacy, and policy issues related to mobile computing.

Overview: Information security takes on new dimensions in a mobile context. Protection of sensitive data, IT systems, and user privacy requires different strategies. Given the limited control colleges and universities have over the mobile devices and apps on campus, what solutions can institutions find—in technology or policy—to the issues of mobile security? Bring your experiences and ideas as we examine the current state of mobile security, anticipate what's coming, and explore effective practices.

What Is the 5-Day Sprint? A free, weeklong online experience. Join us April 25–29 for this focused learning opportunity on one of the top IT issues in higher education today—mobile computing.

How Do You Participate? Visit the website throughout the week. The 5-Day Sprint is a build-your-own experience. Read and comment on resources, take part in web seminars, expert Q&A sessions, and discussions in our IdeaScale forum, all accessible from each day's web page.
