HOT TOPIC WORKSHOP: MANAGING DATA SECURITY

Cybersecurity and data integrity requirements such as CUI and NIST 800-171 are the new normal in the world of research data. The aim of this workshop is to bring together the affected parties - faculty, contract and grant administration and IT professionals - for a discussion on how to efficiently facilitate research with these new priorities and requirements. This workshop will provide a regulatory overview, a discussion on creating awareness, getting buy-in, policy issues and approaches to IT security architecture. Participants will hear from a faculty panel regarding their experiences.
