Abstract

The university environment has unique challenges for information security. Just as corporate networks have exploded in size, services, users, and devices, university networks also have a continually changing and diverse user population, an open network that encourages collaboration, intellectual property that has requirements to be shared as well as protected, and budgetary constraints that reduce services or move data outside of the university. This talk will explore some of these issues.
