Information Security Symposium
On June 20-21, 2017, 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.
The main conference site will be the Mondavi Center and UC Davis Conference Center. The event takes place Tuesday and Wednesday, June 20-21, 2017. 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.
Due to popular demand we are expanding capacity for the 2017 event. Information privacy professionals, 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 will be in attendance. 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.
Sessions and Tracks
The conference will emphasize sessions for information sharing about technology, information security and privacy. Sessions from the event will include technical and non-technical presentations, as well as hands-on labs. The duration of instructional labs will be three hours and the duration of lectures will be one or two hours. Sessions include general topics as well as specific technologies or solutions.
