Myths in Information Security (Speaking Engagement)

Wednesday, October 18 | 11:20am Pacific Daylight Time

@Internet2 Tech Exchange

While at the Interner2 Tech Exchange, be sure to attend Myths in Information Security, a talk hosted by Duo Security's Mark Loveless, Sr. Security Researcher, and April Baird, Client Engineering Programmer at UC Davis Health.

In this talk, Mark and April note how the network has changed - between the cloud, bringing your own devices, wireless, and an ever-changing landscape of new attacks and attackers, some common truths about protecting your organization's assets no longer apply. They'll take a look at a list of common myths surrounding authentication, the perimeter, anti-virus, patching, and network architecture, breaking them down into a very interactive and entertaining format to help gain perspective on this new environment.

Attend this session to learn:

  • How usable security is the most effective security in practice
  • How to reduce the burden on faculty, staff and students by removing older and unneeded barriers
  • How one can have the open-ended networks EDU users want and still be safe
