UC Davis Security Symposium Scheduled for June 2003

Given the constant threats to the security of UC Davis computing and network systems, IET is developing an IT Security Symposium. Scheduled for June 18-19, 2003, this symposium will be packed with security-related material intended to give campus technical professionals tips and tricks for securing campus systems. This conference will leverage available security expertise to build security knowledge and awareness, thus benefiting all campus organizations and computer users. The symposium will include a special management track that will offer sessions for non-technical managers and unit administrators. This track will cover such topics as what to expect from security administrators and how to build and support a solid information security program. Due to the anticipated interest and value of the security topics, IET will open both speaking opportunities and enrollment to other UC campuses. A call for proposals was issued in early January, 2003. Registration is planned for early Spring Quarter.
