Subject: Securing the eCampus 2011: July 19-20 @ Dartmouth College
For the past four years CIOs, CISOs and other academic IT leaders have met in Hanover, NH to discuss how information security has become a significant campus-wide concern and an institution-wide responsibility. We are pleased to announce the 5th Annual "Securing the eCampus" conference and invite you to join us this year in discussing the unique challenges of cyber security in academia and what it takes to build a culture of security at your institution.

Day one will feature a combination of presentations from leaders in the information security field, a panel discussion on cyber insurance and break-out sessions. This year we are fortunate to include among our presenters:

Shari Lawrence Pfleeger - Research Director of the Institute for Information Infrastructure Protection (I3P) and Co-author of Security in Computing
Chuck Pfleeger - Head of Pfleeger Consulting Group and Co-author of Security in Computing
Larry Conrad - Vice Chancellor for Information Technology and Chief Information Officer for the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
Alex Hutton - Principal in Research and Risk Intelligence at Verizon Business

The second day will include break-out sessions that allow participants to discuss specific topic areas in smaller groups and in a more informal setting. Topics will include: "anatomy of an attack" with Dartmouth's Adam Goldstein and the Cyber Security Initiative Team; social media security and privacy with Plymouth State's Jennifer Frank; the OWASP Top 10 with Cigital's Kuai Hinojosa; understanding global internet events with Doug Madory of Renesys; and more.  The conference will begin on the morning of Tuesday, July 19th and will conclude on the afternoon of July 20th.  

Details on the conference and registration information can be found on our website at: http://www.ists.dartmouth.edu/events/ecampus/.  

The registration fee for the conference is $125 and includes breakfast, lunch, snacks and a networking event on July 19th and breakfast, lunch and snacks on July 20th.

We have set aside a block of rooms for the conference at both the Six South Street Hotel in Downtown Hanover and the Courtyard by Marriott - Hanover/Lebanon.  The cutoff date for both room blocks is June 18th.  See the website's page on lodging for more information: http://www.ists.dartmouth.edu/events/ecampus/lodging.html.
