Cybersecurity and Privacy Festival 2022

Ivy+ Cybersecurity & Privacy Festival 2022

Cloudy with a Chance of AWESOME

October 26 & 27 | 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. PT

Stanford has partnered with leading universities around the country to bring you the 2022 Ivy+ Cybersecurity & Privacy Festival, equipped with diverse perspectives and subject matter experts that will prepare you to recognize and defend against the latest cybersecurity threats.

This is a hybrid event hosted in-person at David and Joan Traitel Building at Hoover Institution and virtually through Zoom. All Stanford University, Stanford Medicine, and the broader higher education communities are invited.

 

What S'UP! (Security, You, & Privacy)

Cloud computing has made previously unimaginable computing power accessible to just about anyone. From powerful software delivered globally through a browser, to infinitely-scalable computing that’s billed by the second, it’s so pervasive that it now seems completely transparent. But “out of sight, out of mind” can be a life-disruptive trap. The cloud touches all our lives, every day, from social to legal, financial to academic. It’s more than just someone else’s data center. We all need to be mindful of evolving cybersecurity and employ safe cloud computing practices.

Learn about the unique cybersecurity challenges when doing university work in the cloud and what we all can do to deter cybercriminals from negatively impacting our lives. Join the Ivy+ Information Security and Privacy Offices for this two-day event to learn effective cloud security practices.
