Security Professionals Conference
May 4-6, 2015
Minneapolis, Minnesota, and Online
Back to the Future
Plan to join us for the 13th annual Security Professionals Conference on May 4–6, 2015, in Minneapolis or online where we will explore the theme of "Back to the Future".
This conference is the premier forum for connecting with higher education information security and privacy professionals.
It's clear that today's information security practitioners require a unique blend of a vision for the future, combined with the wisdom and experience of the past, in order to successfully steer organizations across the modern threat landscape. While we all wish we had a crystal ball to predict the future of information security, we cannot forget that the past will have an impact on our role both today and tomorrow. No time machine is necessary to re-live the past few decades of security, privacy and technology, as many of us have evolved just as the solutions and threats have evolved. Much can be learned from the experiences of the past, and how it can shape what is in the future for our roles and responsibilities.
Come and learn from those who have been there, and those that are setting the benchmarks for the future. Grab the keys to your Delorean, and join us in Minneapolis where we'll go Back to the Future together, while preparing for tomorrow's threats through what is happening today.
