Balancing the Need for Security and Open, Collaborative Networking

Thursday, January 1, 2004

Abstract

The EDUCAUSE Center for Analysis and Research (ECAR) study of IT security in higher education portrays an industry that is struggling to secure a culturally open environment against the rising tide of threats posed both from within and without higher education. This session will summarize key survey findings regarding IT security technologies implemented by higher education institutions. It will also introduce a new Effective Security Practices Guide developed by the EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Computer and Network Security Task Force that contains resources on network and host vulnerability assessment, security architecture design, network and host security implementation, virus and intrusion detection, incident handling and response, and encryption and authentication.
