Cyber Security: It Takes a Community

Thursday, January 1, 2004


The authors discuss the need for the higher education community to come together, to ensure cyber security. Because of these perceived needs, a coalition of technology, industry, and education leaders is moving to establish a Cyber Security Forum for Higher Education. Its purpose is to create an opportunity for discussion of higher ed computer and network security issues that involve both the corporate and academic communities, with the goal of improving higher ed cyber security through mutual efforts. The forum will focus on the IT security needs of higher education while respecting the business needs of its corporate participants. The Cyber Security Forum for Higher Education and the EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Computer and Network Security Task Force support an agenda that specifically and actively addresses the security needs of colleges and universities.
