We are pleased to sponsor the 2019 Eastern Association of College and University Business Officers (EACUBO) Annual Meeting being held on October 13-16, 2019, at the Baltimore Marriott Waterfront in Baltimore, MD. EACUBO is centered on professional development, technical expertise and creative value-added, problem-solving.
While at the conference, we hope you will take the opportunity to stop by our booth to meet many of our not-for-profit practitioners from around the country. You also won’t want to miss our conference session:
- Ray Gandy, Director and Leader of the IT Risk and Security Practice in New England and Michelle Sylvia Spriggs, Managing Director and Member of the Not-For-Profit & Education Practice, will be presenting alongside Merrimack College at the conference on October 15 beginning at 11:30am.
Their session, entitled "How to Provide a Connected Experience While Maintaining a Secure Environment on a Higher Ed Campus" will explore how not-for-profits can adopt practices to tackle discussions of "operational vs. security." We will also discuss real-life scenarios and cyber security trends in the higher education sector.
