Center for Digital Education & Converge: research in education technology for K-12 and higher education



ASK THE EXPERT: School Network and Information Security YOU MUST KNOW

December 16, 2008 - December 16, 2008

We invite you to learn more about the Symantec Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution and how Symantec can help you achieve an Open, Collaborative and Secure educational environment.

Data security is a top priority for education leaders (in fact, it is top of mind for every IT professional in the country). No one wants to be featured in a news headline describing the loss or mishandling of confidential and sensitive data. This seminar is designed to share the ins and outs of securing your critical information while maintaining an open and collaborative educational environment. We'll discuss how to discover, monitor and protect confidential data wherever it is stored or used. There will be lots of time for you to ask the questions you want answers to before an unfortunate situation occurs. It promises to be an hour well spent.
