On the world stage
Over 750 students, faculty, staff, researchers, and clinicians throughout Stanford were joined by another 300 external participants representing more than 150 schools for the week-long, virtual festival — themed “Pandemic Edition.”
Organized into two-hour daily blocks during the week of Oct. 19 to 23, the event included a rich variety of talks, workshops, and networking sessions led by subject matter experts and industry leaders in the fields of cybersecurity and privacy.
“This year’s Cybersecurity and Privacy Festival was an overwhelming success thanks to our planning committee, along with our many presenters, facilitators, and volunteers. Going virtual enabled us to reach more people while opening the event to the education community worldwide — a notable contribution to Stanford’s teaching and learning mission. This is a model that we plan to continue and expand for our future festivals,” said Michael Tran Duff, Stanford’s chief information security officer and chief privacy officer.
Standout sessions included:
- A New Era in Cybersecurity: Navigating Through a Global Crisis, Jason Lee, CISO, Zoom Video Communications
- Higher-Ed CISO Discussion Panel with David Sherry, CISO at Princeton University; Christian Hamer, CISO at Harvard University; Cathy Hubbs, CISO at American University; and Michael Tran Duff, CISO and Chief Privacy Officer at Stanford University
