Presentation by Tim Tolson Cloud Computing, Collaboration Tools, and You at UVa: Tim F. Jost Tolson

By the time of this talk, ITS will have rolled out its new BOX cloud service. So let's talk about what data to keep in the cloud and how to keep you head out of the clouds when you're storing data and files there. There's lots of good uses for this new storage service and there are institutional limitations and real dangers to using any cloud service or collaboration tool for your work, research, and teaching. Come learn about some of the risks, UVa's guidelines, and what questions to ask about cloud computing, collaboration tools, and click-thru licenses.

Hackers take definite steps, so we can learn to stop at least some of them in the early stages, a good thing to do to protect your identity, as well as personal and institutional data.

Breakout Sessions (C)
Presentation by Jer Kong Consumerization In the Business World: Jer Kong

We've all seen how fast technology has developed. We're all victims of consumerization, the sheer force that Apple Inc. has on the consumer electronics area. Every year, the consumer electronics manufacturers must put out a new updated version of their device. This session topic will focus on how we are becoming more dependent on our mobile devices, and the dangers associated with this strategy. BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) is also more common in the workplace. This dangerous combination of BYOD and consumerization poses questions whether new security protocols are required. I believe that we are making the same deadly mistakes that we were making ten years ago. Come find out why we need to secure the human, first and foremost.
