Building a CENIC Security Strategy

Numerous headlines in recent years have drawn our attention to successful hacking, leading to breaches of information believed secure, access to systems believed safe. This year alone, hospitals have paid ransom to regain access to their own records, and political parties have been publicly embarrassed, to the point of replacing their own leaders.

Those headlines raise security questions for any organization involved in the digital economy, and CENIC is no different.

At the center of CENIC’s work is its commitment to supporting the research and educational missions of its members, and doing so in an open and transparent way. This focus is driving Chief Cybersecurity Strategist Sean Peisert (SP) and Vice President, and Chief Technology Officer John Dundas (JD) to develop a robust strategy for the network and its members.
