California Community Colleges Information Security CenterThe California Community Colleges (CCC) Information Security Center will host a one-day workshop on Jan. 15 for information technology staff within the CCC.

The workshop will be held at San Jose City College from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will explore tried-and-true methods for securing campus networks and educating CCC students and employees about safe online practices.

Presentations at the workshop will cover free, open-source tools that can be used, as well as the resources and services provided by the CCC Technology Center—both now and in the future, according to Jeff Holden, Chief Information Security Officer for the Technology Center, located at Butte College.


The session will also discuss information security management frameworks like ISO 27000, an international standard used to manage information security risks and controls within an organization.

  • How have you secured your campus?
  • What challenges have you seen and conquered?
  • What tools are you using at your campuses?
  • How do you inform and educate the students and employees at your campuses?
