Boston University Security Camp Summer 2012
When:9:00 pm - 4:30 pm
Note: Registration starts at 8:30
Workshop Organizer: Boston University
Boston University, in association with NERCOMP, will once again host the Security Camp for university system, network, and security administrators. The goal of the conference is to share the experiences of those responsible for maintaining computing security in the higher education environment so all may benefit from our collective experience. Opportunities to network with other University staff will be provided throughout the day.
Registration information to be provided later this month.
At this time, we are actively seeking individuals who would be willing to give a presentation to the group. Our only restriction is that the presentation time is not to be used for a vendor product pitch. Some possible topics of interest include:
* Legal / Regulatory Compliance
* Incident tracking and handling
* Large Scale (widespread) Vulnerability Handling
* IDS strategies in a multi-Gb/s world.
* Vulnerability scanning (including application scanning) for PCI
* Developing and enforcing security policies
* Managing risk
* Network security, such as firewalls, IDS, IPS, and netflow
* Identity management
* Forensics (mobile devices, MacBook Air, etc)
* Anti-virus/anti-spyware, etc. (is anything working anymore?)
* Mobile device security
* Database security
* Web server security
* Operating system security
* Attack trends
* Cloud Security (Software as a Service, Google Apps, IaaS, PaaS)
* Social Networking: Security and Privacy (Google+,Facebook, etc)
* Social Engineering and Phishing (education and outreach efforts to combat)
We welcome other ideas related to security in higher education computing. Feel free to look at the archives from previous years for topic ideas. The archives are available at:
We plan to allot around 45 minutes per presentation, but this can be adjusted to fit your needs.
If you are interested in speaking at the conference, please write back to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We ask that you respond by Friday, July 29, with the topic you plan to present on so that we may create an agenda.
