Duo Hosts Security Sessions at the Internet2 Global Security Summit
Duo Security will be at the Internet2 Global Summit hosted at the Chicago Marriott Downtown from May 15-18, exhibiting security solutions to help protect higher education, as well as hosting special events and presentations on authentication in education.
Internet2 works to connect people, networks, technologies and solutions across the research and education systems. The 2016 Global Summit will feature keynote speaker Charlie Catlett speaking about the Array of Things (AOT), that is, real-time location-based data collected by sensor boxes in Chicago that can inform policy and decisions that affect the city’s environment, infrastructure and activity.
Another keynote speaker, Joseph Emerson, will explain the latest breakthrough features of quantum physics, including how researchers today are using quantum physics to enable new capabilities for computation and communication that will have a major impact on information technology.
The sessions feature a diverse number of tracks focusing on the following topics:
- Applied Research, Scholarship and Applications
- Cloud-Based Research, Education and Service Missions
- Cyber Security and Trust, and Identity in Education and Research
- Healthcare and Life Sciences
- Innovations in Advanced Networking and Services

Duo Security Special Interest Group
When: Monday, May 16 from 10:30-11:30AM CDT
