Save the Date for the 2016 Security Professionals Conference

Please plan to join us for the 14th annual Security Professionals Conference on April 18–20, 2016, at the Westin Seattle Hotel in Seattle, Washington, or online where we will explore the theme Data, Intelligence, Risk, and Value: Security and Privacy in Higher Ed.

Higher education information security and privacy teams do so much more than just managing firewall rules and anti-virus systems; and the value that these teams provide extends far beyond the IT department. Information security and privacy teams play a vital role in institutional risk management activities, provide actionable intelligence in institutional operations, and offer seasoned advice in one of the most challenging environments to date.

We know that our profession must evolve and adapt quickly. We know that we are most likely to succeed when we respond to emerging threats, new trends, and best practices collaboratively. This conference program will include a diverse array of presenters, perspectives, and professional experience—giving participants a chance to network and discuss actionable solutions, tools, and approaches with their higher education security and privacy peers. Join us in learning from those who are “in this with you."
