Connecting the Academic Experience to the Operational Security Needs of Higher Education

Monday, January 1, 2007


One of the criteria for becoming a National Center of Academic Excellence in Information Assurance Education is for "the academic program to demonstrate how the university encourages the practice of IA, not merely that IA is taught." There is a pressing need for institutions of higher education to secure their computer systems, campus networks, and protect information assets. The EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Computer and Network Security Task Force has identified several areas where students and faculty could gain valuable experience while at the same time performing a valuable service to the campus community. This session will challenge IA students, faculty, and administrators to leverage partnerships and collaborations with their college and university IT operations where practical insights can supplement the academic experience.
