October is here, and you know what that means*? The 2018 Internet2 Technology Exchange is right around the corner! Join Duo Security from October 15 to October 19 in sunny Orlando, Florida for this week long event.
(*I bet you were thinking Halloween, which is also exciting. Bonus points if you were thinking National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which is even more exciting — more on that later.)
Duo is proud to help sponsor this event, which brings together chief technologists, scientists, engineers, architects, operators and students from around the U.S. and beyond to learn about implementation challenges, best common practices, and the future of the technology and security industries within the realm of research and education.
The conference will be held at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort and begins with a pre-event day on Monday, October 15, where you can select a full-day or half-day tutorial on subjects like network automation, TIER access governance, routing security and more. Then from Tuesday, October 16 to Thursday, October 18, join some track sessions focused on advanced networking, information security, and trust & identity; attend working meetings; and network with your peers during breakfast, lunch, breaks, evening receptions, and sponsor socials. (Make sure to register before heading to the sessions — a shameless plug, because we’re sponsoring the registration desk, but also necessary to get in!) The event winds down on Friday, October 19 with Trust & Identity “ACAMP” sessions.
If you’d like to catch some time with your favorite tech and security vendors (like Duo!), stop by the expo hall of the conference center Tuesday through Thursday during the following times:
- 7:00 a.m. - 8:30 a.m.
- 9:50 a.m. - 10:20 a.m.
- 12:10 p.m. 1:40 p.m.
- 3:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Visit our table to snag some swag, check out a demo, and learn how you can use our Duo Beyond edition to provide access to all of your applications anytime, anywhere.
We’d also love to see you at our special interest group on Tuesday, October 16 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. You’ll meet with other campuses using Duo to learn about shared use cases and updates on the NET+ Duo program, and to provide input on the future of the program.
Want even more Duo goodness? Make sure to attend “The Rise and Fall and Rise of the Edge: The End of Passwords, Beginning of Zero Trust, and the Technologies on the Edge Driving It” on Wednesday, October 17 at 2:40 p.m. Hosted by Keith Brautigam, Director of Identity and Access Management at Pennsylvania State University, and Duo’s Senior Security Researcher, Mark Loveless, this presentation will cover the rise and fall of the network perimeter, why it’s falling, what will rise up to take its place or cover the gaps (e.g. zero trust), and how the Internet of Things (IoT) is unintentionally driving this perimeter-less movement. (Please RSVP to save your seat!)
But wait, there’s more Duo at Internet2. Come party with us on Wednesday night at our cocktail reception from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Grab a drink and some food, and catch up with some of your dearest industry experts and enthusiasts to relax after a long day of learning. (Again, please make sure to RSVP to attend.)
We’re so excited for this year’s Internet2 Technology Exchange, and we hope to see you there in mid-October. However, the learning doesn’t have to stop (or start) with Internet2.
As mentioned earlier, October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), which is one of Duo’s favorite things! All month long, we’re working to improve awareness and promote secure online behavior. Together with Internet2 and EDUCAUSE, we’re encouraging campuses to adopt multi-factor authentication, also known as two-factor authentication. So far, we’ve reached 154 campuses, with almost two million students and about a million staff members set up with MFA. You can find more information about this initiative in the Stay Safe Online blog
There’s so much excitement on the way — we look forward to seeing you at the conference!
