Cyber Defense and Disaster Recovery Conference

The Cyber Defense and Disaster Recovery Conference will take place on Friday, March 13 at the University of Illinois-Springfield (UIS). The event, hosted by the Center for Systems Security and Information Assurance (CSSIA), will address the critical issue of protecting data.

Information Technology professionals will learn how to prepare for new rules and regulations while technology evolves at a breakneck speed. Discussion topics include, "How IT and Public Policy Can Coexist," "Locking Down Your Online Data: A Primer for Consumers," and "Corporate Espionage and Counter Intelligence."

CSSIA is dedicated to promoting research and education in information security, assurance and privacy. CSSIA at UIS and Moraine Valley Community College in Palos Hills established the first comprehensive Information Technology Security and Data Assurance Center in 2003 in the Midwest. This center collects, categorizes, adapts, enhances, standardizes, and evaluates curriculum and offers training programs to community college and university faculty, secondary school faculty, and students across the region.
