Information Security Symposium
On June 18-19, 2019, technical professionals and administrative managers from ten University of California campuses and medical centers/health systems will convene at UC Davis for the nineth Information Security Symposium. This biennial event provides IT professionals from all UC campuses, other higher education guests, and California state agencies, 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 technology advances, so do the cyber security threats. Security and the use of technology to confront these threats is a high priority for the California university systems and state agencies.
The main conference site will be the UC Davis Conference Center and Mondavi Center . The event takes place Tuesday and Wednesday, June 18-19, 2019. 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 both days.
Information privacy professionals, system and security administrators, and unit managers from the ten University of California campuses, as well as Medical Centers and Health Systems will attend. The chief information security officers from the California community colleges, the California State University system, and California state agencies also attend. These are the leaders and technologists responsible for making technology and training decisions and typically have budgetary approval. Many are leading edge technology adopters.
