On July 12-13, 2016, ISTS and Dartmouth College Information Technology Services will host the 10th annual Securing the eCampus conference on the Dartmouth campus. As always, the overarching topic will be information security in higher education.

The conference will bring together CIOs and CISOs from academic institutions throughout the country.

The schedule for the 12th will feature a full day of lectures and discussion. The conference will begin with a bountiful breakfast buffet at the Hanover Inn and keynote address by Denis Goulet, Commissioner of Information Technology for the State of New Hampshire.

An evening networking reception will be held at Dartmouth's Paganucci Lounge.  Lectures and discussion will continue the morning of the 13th and the conference will conclude with lunch.

This year we will offer presentations on topics such as emerging trends in information security, incident preparedness, privacy, cyber-risk governance, and the security implications of evolving Cloud-provider relationships.  

Confirmed speakers include:

George EhrhornIT Security Manager for MathWorks, speaking on "People-centric Security Culture"

Nathan Hall, Harvard IT Security, speaking on "An APT Pupil?: Sophisticated Intruders in a University Environment"

Rodney Petersendirector of the National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education (NICE) at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), speaking on "NIST's  National Initiative for Cyber-security Education (NICE)"

 

Pre-Conference Workshop Topics:

SQL Injection: Pitfalls and Prevention Workshop

SQL injection refers to an injection attack wherein an attacker can execute malicious SQL statements that control a web application’s database server.  Since an SQL injection vulnerability could possibly affect any website or web application that makes use of an SQL-based database, the vulnerability is one of the oldest, most prevalent and most dangerous of web application vulnerabilities.

Presenters:  Jonathan Crossett and/or Elijah Gagne – Database Administration, ITS, Dartmouth College

Email Protection with SPF, DKIM, and DMARC

Enterprise sender identity technologies—SPF, DKIM, and DMARC—when properly implemented and incorporated into your email security strategy, can help secure organization e-mail and mitigate the risk of phishing campaigns. SPF, DKIM, and DMARC are public domain frameworks that can assist higher education institutions with the authentication of e-mail senders and integrity of messages.

Presenter: Doug Plumley – Application Infrastrucure Group - Information Technology Services, Dartmouth College

Spiders, Tornadoes, and Deterministic Sensitivity?  How the Discipline of Decision Analysis can help Manage Cyber Security Risk

This interactive (and dare we say entertaining!) workshop will introduce the concepts of Decision Analysis from a cyber security perspective.  Business leaders have benefited from such methodologies to make strategic decisions focused on "decision quality" and "value-creation".  Leveraging these same methods can help cyber security professionals overcome cognitive and motivational biases, address uncertainty, and tackle challenging risk management decisions.

Presenter: Adam Goldstein – Associate Director, Information Security - Information Technology Services, Dartmouth College
