Creating a Secure University: Technology, Policies, Education, and Culture

Wednesday, January 1, 2003


The open environment of a university seems to preclude taking the measures needed to secure its technology infrastructure, yet a few universities have managed to greatly decrease their vulnerability to attacks. This seminar provides practical strategies for securing your college or university. Strategies presented include (1) developing a practical acceptable-use policy and integrating the enforcement into existing university functions, (2) creating a viable risk analysis process for use across all university departments, (3) developing security awareness among all members of the university community, and (4) developing an effective incident response capability. Seminar participants will work with the presenters on designing solutions to real-world security problems.
