Cloudy With a Chance of Awesome

Registration now open for the Ivy+ Cybersecurity & Privacy Festival 2022
Thursday, August 18, 2022

Hang onto your hats, Stanford — festival season is blowing in, and we’re predicting extensive cloud coverage at the fourth annual Ivy+ Cybersecurity & Privacy Festival on Oct. 26 and 27. 

Stanford is partnering with several top universities to fill the bill with prominent cybersecurity and industry leaders and scholars. This year’s focus: cloud security. 

From the start, the Cyberfest promises an extraordinary program with a very special virtual guest speaker. Former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice, currently the Tad and Dianne Taube Director of the Hoover Institution and the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on public policy, will virtually deliver welcome remarks to kick off the event. 

Register to attend virtually or in person at the David and Joan Traitel Building of Hoover Institution on Oct. 26 and virtually only on Oct. 27. All Stanford University (students, too!), Stanford Medicine, SLAC, and the broader higher education communities are invited. Get started with registration.

Two-day forecast

While it rarely rains in California, Cyberfest attendees can expect a downpour of “awesome” talks and workshops, no matter where they are on the globe. 

Drop into discussions about current and future conditions, and learn how to prepare for unexpected changes in the cybersphere. With a strong emphasis on cloud-based technology, expect to learn:

  • How to decrease exposure to cyber threats
  • ⛈️ Surprising ways that you could be exposing yourself and your personal data to cyber attacks
  • ☁️ Straightforward and effective cloud security tools and resources that you can start using today
  • 🌤️ How Stanford and other institutions are working together to protect our communities and the data we are entrusted with

​What did one raindrop say to another? 

Two’s a company, three’s a cloud. 

Don’t miss the opportunity to join this Cyberfest "cloud" with your colleagues, classmates, and friends. Visit to register and get the latest event updates, including speaker and workshop information.
