Security considerations increasingly impact enterprise IT service selection and delivery and responding to information security incidents cause disruptions to campus operations. With a seemingly always increasing array of security risks facing campuses like ransomware, endpoint security, data protection, and cloud security, the higher education community has been actively engaging with a number of enterprise IT security providers. Strong partnerships bring security solutions that best meet higher education’s needs. 

At the Internet2 Technology Exchange, my colleague Saqib Awan from Lightspeed Ventures and I will be convening a panel of founders and senior executives from enterprise security companies to discuss the threat landscape and security solutions for higher education. Panelists have decades of experience in networking, security, and the technology industry and will be sharing their insights on how higher education can meet their campus missions and still manage these threats. 

Register for the Technology Exchange if you haven’t already and join us for what promises to be a fascinating and lively discussion exploring some of the most pressing issues facing higher education enterprise IT practitioners today. The panel is held Monday September 26 at 12:10pm in the Isles room.
