Post-secondary educational institutions, technology and risk mitigation

I’d like to  thank the Association of Canadian Community Colleges for inviting me to speak at its winter symposium on “Technology and Web 2.0 Across Institutions.” I addressed data breaches, employee use of “consumer cloud” services, outsourcing risks and the relationship between Web 2.0 and the duty to maintain a safe and harassment free college environment. My slides are below.

I was able to stay for a good presentation by a Google rep on its enterprise offering, which has a compelling value proposition, especially given its basic license is free to educational institutions. Google is going to cause many educational institutions to work through the security and privacy related issues associated with cloud computing.
