Security Conference 2012 CFP Now Open! Proposals Due 12/16

As the breadth of technology expands globally, so do the boundaries of information security. The 10th annual Security Professionals Conference will attempt to recalibrate security during a paradigm shift.

The conference, "Security Everywhere: Exploring the Expanding World of Security," will address our goal as information security professionals of supporting our constituents’ ability to take advantage of modern computing in safe and secure ways. And, as the definition of “security” grows to include privacy, identity management, physical security, information assurance, and more, it is imperative to share information and experiences with peers.

Share your experience, stories, and lessons learned—submit a proposal to present at the Security Professionals Conference.


The Security Professionals Conference follows three key tracks: Awareness and Training; Governance, Risk, and Compliance; and Technologies, Operations, and Practices. These focus areas stem from the understandings that our institutional data resides in environments where borders continue to dissolve and that constant accessibility and portability have become commonplace.

This means that:

  • Individuals and their choices are essential in preserving security and privacy
  • Data resides on a diverse array of personal and enterprise devices
  • Global and instantaneous information sharing are readily available
  • Attacks and malware now focus on every facet of our environment

The general session and morning concurrent sessions on Thursday, May 17, will be combined with the Enterprise IT Leadership Conference to encourage IT leaders to network and collaborate on enterprise security issues.

This event is brought to you by the EDUCAUSE and Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council and the REN-ISAC. If you have experience with these topics and concepts, share your experience with your peers: submit a proposal before December 16.
