Discussion Session 1: Building a Bridge Between Privacy and Security
While privacy practices and programs have gained some recognition in higher education over the last couple of years, higher education still lags significantly behind government and for profit industries as technical security has continued to have more sway.  How can privacy professionals bridge the programmatic gaps between “privacy” and “security?”  How do both privacy and security professionals help train and educate the campus community about these important areas of compliance, technology and business practice?

3:15 PM - 3:30 PM
3:30 PM - 4:45 PM Discussion Session 3:  Implementing New Technologies
In the last generation, the term “information technology” had an emphasis on technology.  Increasingly, institutions are turning their attention to the “information” aspect of that term.  In this session we will discuss different strategies and approaches that institutions are taking to address how to do information management with the plethora of technologies used by staff, students and faculty.  In particular we will look at how to navigate vetting new technologies with information stewards, how to instruct faculty on appropriate use of institutional information for teaching, learning and research and how to guide student awareness of what an on-line presence means academically and in contemplation of personal and professional futures.

  • Rodney Petersen, Senior Government Relations Office, EDUCAUSE
  • David Sherry, Chief Information Security Officer, Brown University
4:45 PM – 6:00 PM Reception

Discussion sessions will be small group discussions of about 15-25 people, led by co-moderators.
