"From a criminal perspective, educational institutions are a veritable buffet of information that can be sold on the black market,” said Myers. “As these organizations hold massive amounts of saleable data and must balance openness of certain types of information, their IT staff needs to be constantly aware of who is accessing what resources and lock things down appropriately. This allows them to take steps to proactively protect themselves, other staff, professors and students.”

Campus Technology is the leading source for industry knowledge and professional development. At this year's conference, attendees will discover a diverse and relevant offering of courses that focus on the most pressing campus-wide IT challenges, needs and goals.
