I find the Educause Security Professionals Conference to be one of the 
best "bang for the buck" things out there, and would urge you to 
consider attending.  This year's conference is in Atlanta on April 
20-22.  I realize that budgets are tight, and getting tighter, but if 
you can squeeze something in, this is well worth the effort.
