Summary : "There aren.t many information security jobs where charged with protecting a police department, electric utility, nuclear reactor, health care facility, and a rail gun. The University of Texas is its own city within Austin. But, at an EDU you can.t just throw up a firewall and call it a day; a certain amount of openness must be maintained for academic freedom and research. In addition, there are some weird devices to secure on a university campus you'll find in few other places. Some of the things the UT Information Security Office has assessed over the years include an MRI machine, a giant glowing globe, manhole covers, SCADA systems, and a Godzillatron. The ISO will discuss, in panel format, the challenges of securing a university environment. Come with questions."
