About this event

Joint meetup with Empow Cyber Security

Please note: You must sign up on their eventbrite page to attend.

How did MIT Media Lab overcome the challenges of protecting their Higher Ed. network?

Start the holiday right with this meetup and roundtable discussion.

Running the cyber security of a university is a daunting task - thousands of ever changing students and staff connecting from everywhere from dorms to cafeterias to remote locations, the need to maintain an open learning environment where information can flow freely while still protecting valuable (and very attractive to hackers!) information like personal information, university financials and more....

As part of the largest and most advanced university system in the world, we in Boston have a unique opportunity to share and learn from others in the same position.And exciting things are happening in the cyber sphere that can bring particular benefits to universities. One of these is the use of Elastic's open source based data lake and search capabilities. Find out how MIT Media Lab is tackling its security challenges, and discuss your use cases, in our round table event.

There will be a panel table discussion with:
Mike Paquette -Director of Product, Security Market, Elastic
Michael Bletsas Director of Computing MIT Media Lab
Avi Clesla - Founder and CEO of Empow

Save your spot now - space is limited to 25!
