Aaron Titus will be presenting at the International Conference on Applied Modeling & Information Security Systems (ICAMISS) on October 10, 2009 at the University of Alabama, Birmingham.
The speech will focus on the risks associated with personal information management, especially in an institution of higher education, where information is supposed to flow freely. These are among the policies and behaviors that put information at risk:
- Administrative Decentralization
- Naive Office Culture
- Unprotected “Old” Data
- Shadow Systems
- Unregulated Servers
- Unsophisticated Privacy Policies
- Improper Use of the SSN
- Unsanitized Hard Drives and Insecure Laptops
The International Conference on Applied Modeling & Information Security Systems is sponsored by the Department of Defense, Krell Institute, NASA-Ames Research Center, Institute of Applied Science & Computation, Eastern Illinois University and University of Alabama at Birmingham.
