Combatting Security Challenges of an Urban University

In the mid-1990s, the University of Pennsylvania had a real problem – application numbers were beginning to dip, in part, to parents not feeling their kids would be safe in the West Philadelphia urban environment, known for violent crime. Penn wanted to avoid the “town/gown” stigma that plagues so many higher ed institutions, and continue to foster their unique urban open campus environment. How would they combat the image of a great school in a bad location?

The solution – a neighborhood initiative program that looked beyond traditional campus security. The result – Penn has been ranked #1 in the Higher Education Sector in Security 500 for the past seven years in a row.

Join us for a webinar with Maureen Rush, Penn’s Vice President for Public Safety and Superintendent of Penn Police, to learn:

  • The framework for building Penn’s neighborhood initiative program
  • How to build and gain support from the community “beyond the university walls”
  • Unique ways to partner with local law enforcement to meet both organizational needs

Virtualization and Data Center Security: What You Need to Know for 2014

Data centers are increasingly becoming the center of the enterprise, and data center and cyber security is following the same path for security departments. According to Justin Flynn, a consultant at the Burwood Group, the virtualization of data centers allows enterprises to scale more easily and faster, with a smaller footprint.

However, hosting enterprise data in the cloud can make intrusion detection more difficult – how can enterprise security leaders team up with other departments to keep aware of cyber risks and traffic, and physical and data compliance during the virtual transition? How can CISOs and CSOs discuss cyber threats with the C-Suite to get the resources they need? And how can the proper infrastructure test and verify possible malicious attacks?
