REN-ISAC is proud to offer six physical security-focused discussion-based workshops to the higher education community. The workshop is focused on physical security, building around a controversial speaker scenario. There is also a significant cyber component to emphasize an enterprise approach to risk management. The scenario for these workshops has been custom-made for REN-ISAC and offers a unique, and realistic, blend of physical and cyber threats for participants to consider.  The workshops will be professionally facilitated.  Each of the participants will receive a copy of the final report, and a summary report will be made available to the entire community.

All in higher education are welcome to attend, not just those from REN-ISAC member institutions. We expect exercise participants to represent physical security, emergency management, information technology and security, and other subject matter experts. Here are the dates and locations for the 2018 workshops:

October 17, 2018:  Hosted at University of Florida
