Security experts from the FBI, SANS, Microsoft, Cisco and others will present
popular security issues such as attack trends and identity theft.  Among other
topics, SANS Chief Research Officer Johannes Ullrich will discuss the popular
Zotob worm and Cisco CISSP Security Expert Domenic Seibold will cover IT
security best practices and the risks associated with non-compliant machines.
Vendors will be available to answer your questions in the Gallery outside the
Auditorium.

"Since ITSA Day started in 1998, UF IT workers have greatly improved security of
campus IT resources" said Kathy Bergsma, UF ISM. "We are pleased to offer
ITSA again this year to help continue the positive trend."

Traditionally, ITSA Day is focused toward IT workers. This year ITSA Day will
also provide content for UF students, faculty and staff such as ways to protect
