For the past three years CIOs, CISOs and other academic IT leaders have 
met in Hanover, NH to discuss how information security has become a 
significant campus-wide concern and an institution-wide responsibility. 
We are pleased to announce the 4th Annual "Securing the eCampus" 
conference and invite you to join us this year in discussing the unique 
challenges of cyber security in academia and what it takes to build a 
culture of security at your institution.

The first day of the conference will offer something new to 
participants. At no additional cost, /e/Campus will offer two training 
seminars on a first come, first served basis (the first 25 RSVPs will be 
admitted).  The two training seminars offered are:

    * /*Into the Cloud*/: A hands-on workshop exploring the pros and
      cons of hosting servers in public, private, and hybrid Clouds.
    * /*Data Driven Security*/: A different approach to determining
      security requirements.

Registration for these training seminars is included in the overall 
conference registration.

Day two will feature our traditional offering of presentations from 
leaders in the information security field. This year we will offer 
presentations on privacy, regulations and policy, security awareness, 
cybercrime, and cyberwar in addition to panels on cloud computing. Our 
presenters include:

    * Executive Director of the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA)
      Michael Kaiser <http://www.staysafeonline.org/content/ncsa-staff>;
    * Author, attorney, educational consultant, and expert witness
      Frederick Lane <http://www.fredericklane.com/>;
    * EDUCAUSE Vice President for Policy and Analysis Gregory Jackson
    * Microsoft Research's Cormac Herley
    * Technologist, entrepreneur, and international security expert
      Matthew Devost <http://devost.net/>;
    * as well as panel discussions on cloud computing featuring leaders
      from the legal and academic communities

The third day will include break-out sessions that allow participants to 
discuss specific topic areas in smaller groups and in a more informal 
setting. Topics will range from e-discovery for higher education, 
emerging technical threats, hacker tools and the hacker curriculum, and 
more.  The conference will begin with the optional seminars on the 
afternoon of Monday, July 19th and will conclude on the afternoon of 
July 21st.
