General computer users and IT professionals from across the region and across the state converged on Baker Center on October 15, 2012 to discuss information security challenges and best practices during OHIO's fifth annual IT Security Seminar.

The diverse audience included not only OHIO faculty, staff, and students but also representatives from Wright State, Hocking College, K-12 educators, and local businesspeople. "We see OHIO as taking a lead role in promoting good information security practices in our region," said Matthew Dalton, OIT Director of Information Security. "This seminar is a great way to do that."

The seminar addressed security on everything from tiny USB drives to massive, cloud-based server farms, with separate sessions for IT professionals and computer end users. As keynote speaker Kim Milford, Chief Information Policy Officer with Indiana University noted during her keynote address, IT security always ties back to the people who use technology.  

"Regardless of who you are or what your role is at the university, you are a part of keeping things secure," said Dalton.
