It’s become a cliché to say that cybersecurity is a team sport, but this session will bring the cliché to life by highlighting three collaborative higher education cybersecurity projects. You’ll learn about the goals, status and intended outcomes of the Joint Security Project, the NREN SIEM Security Project, the Canadian Shared Security Operations Centre Project, and the CUCCIO benchmarking project, together with a view of how these initiatives complement each other and set the stage for future collaborative cybersecurity projects among the higher education community.
