IT Security Symposium
On June 16-17, 2015, an estimated 300 technical professionals and administrative managers from ten University of California campuses and medical centers/health systems will convene at UC Davis for the seventh IT Security Symposium. This biennial event provides IT professionals from all UC campuses the opportunity to meet and discuss computer, network and information security issues and strategies, and provides an ideal forum for the exchange of privacy and security enhancement ideas and solutions. As quickly as technology has advanced, so have cyber security threats. Security and the use of technology to confront today’s threats is a high priority across the University of California system. Registration is closed.
The main conference site will be the new UC Davis Conference Center and will extend over Tuesday and Wednesday, June 16-17, 2015. Instructional computing labs and lectures are scheduled for both days. Financial sponsors may host a lecture and all sponsors (financial and instructional) will have an opportunity to informally meet conference attendees to showcase their technology offerings. Continental breakfasts, as well as lunch and snacks will be provided on both days. Registration is closed.
We are expecting approximately 300 system and security administrators and unit managers from UC Davis and the other nine University of California campuses, as well as Medical Centers and Health Systems, to attend this conference. The attendees represent the technical leads for many units across the entire university system and are typically responsible for making technology and training decisions. Many are leading edge technology adopters. Administrative unit managers are typically responsible for budgetary approval.
