Higher Education in the Mile High City: Duo at EDUCAUSE 2018
Duo Security is off to the Mile High City - Denver, CO - at the end of the month for the 2018 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference - will we see you there?
This year’s activities will be held at the Colorado Convention Center and start with a pre-conference day on Tuesday, October 30; followed by a full three days of breakout sessions, panel discussions and interactive presentations.
While at the conference, you can choose from over 300 sessions on subjects like managing and reducing IT risk, transforming the student experience, and creating a culture of data-informed decision-making. You’ll hear from over 700 speakers and network with over 8,000 IT professionals and technology providers in higher education. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn about the latest technology and security solutions by visiting with over 275 solution providers in the Exhibit Hall on Wednesday, October 31 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:45 p.m., and Thursday, November 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:15 p.m.
Duo will be one of these vendors -- stop by booth #158 to ask us questions, get a demo, and learn how our Unified Access Security solution can ensure only trusted users and trusted devices are accessing your institution’s applications and intranet.
If you’re looking for more time with us, please swing by our cocktail reception the evening of Wednesday, October 31 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. We’ll be hosting the reception with Fischer Identity -- meet us at Henry’s Tavern for drinks and apps as we kick back and relax with other professionals from the conference.
Lastly, Duo will present on Friday, November 2 at 8:00 a.m. Join Duo’s Senior Security Researcher Mark Loveless in meeting room 303 for his interactive presentation, “When IoT Becomes IIoT.” Mark will explore the topic of the industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and how networks are evolving; potential pitfalls involving security/privacy and IIoT; and what we can expect in both the short- and long-term from evolving and perimeterless networks.
We can’t wait for the conference (and to see you!), but you don’t have to wait until then to get your security fix. All October long, we’ll be celebrating National Cyber Security Awareness month. You can get involved, too, by participating in the Universities Lock-Up -- Duo, along with Internet2 and EDUCAUSE, are encouraging campuses to adopt multi-factor authentication, also known as two-factor authentication. Our collaboration with Internet2 to promote multi-factor authentication has 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 this article.
Here’s to National Cyber Security Month and the upcoming 2018 EDUCAUSE Annual Conference! See you in a few weeks!
