2008 Program

Program Overview

Securing the eCampus 2008: Building a Culture of Information Security in an Academic Institution takes place on November 11–12, 2008.

Tuesday, November 11

The conference begins in the morning at the Courtyard by Marriott and will feature presentations from information security and educational IT leaders from across the country. Topics of discussion will include:

  • IT and the current campus environment
  • Emerging trends and the future of information security
  • Getting executive support for security programs
  • Tensions between securing against legal pressure (i.e., copyright complaints, CALEA, and so on) and maintaining an open environment

The day will also include a panel on developing an information security awareness program.

In the evening, join us for a networking social at the Hanover Inn, across from the Dartmouth campus.

Wednesday, November 12

 Day two of the conference will be held on the Dartmouth campus and will feature several "break-out" sessions focusing on both technical and policy issues. Sessions include:

  • Building a Security Operations Center
  • Emerging trends regarding digital investigation and how they might impact incident response preparedness
  • Authenticating remote learners
  • Developing an information security course

The registration fee includes breakfast, lunch, and snacks both days as well as the networking event on Tuesday evening.

Event Sponsors

This workshop is co-sponsored by the Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS) and Peter Kiewit Computing Services (PKCS) at Dartmouth College

The Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS)

The Institute for Security, Technology, and Society (ISTS) at Dartmouth College is dedicated to pursuing research and education to advance information security and privacy throughout society.

ISTS engages in interdisciplinary research, education and outreach programs that focus on information technology (IT) and its role in society, particularly the impact of IT in security and privacy broadly conceived. ISTS nurtures leaders and scholars, educates students and the community, and collaborates with its partners to develop and deploy IT, and to better understand how IT relates to socio-economic forces, cultural values and political influences. ISTS research improves our ability to:

  • Design and deploy secure, usable computer systems and protect them from tampering, disruption and attack
  • Enable people and organizations to communicate and exchange information securely and privately across networked computing devices
  • Address social, economic and policy issues that arise in the development, deployment and regulation of such information technology
Goals of ISTS
  • RESEARCH, to extend knowledge and provide insight and innovation in the area of information security
  • EDUCATION, to increase the number of students and faculty involved in technology research, and to increase community awareness of privacy and security challenges and solutions related to IT
  • OUTREACH, through collaborations that deploy technology and encourage knowledge transfer for both public and private benefit

Peter Kiewit Computing Services (PKCS)

Peter Kiewit Computing Services (PKCS) leads the institution in creating and managing the information technology environment of the College, and enables all members of the institution to use information resources effectively, productively, and securely in support of Dartmouth College's mission and goals.
