IT Connect is a conference organized yearly by Champlain College Saint-Lambert’s Continuing Education department. In 2019, the theme will revolve around Cybersecurity. The conference presents a great opportunity to see speakers from many high-profile organizations, while also presenting valuable networking opportunities throughout. As a public college, Champlain offers a multitude of IT-related programs and courses, and is both a Cisco Networking Academy as well as an AWS Academy. The IT Connect conference series is thus one of many aspects of Champlain’s commitment to IT – and has more than doubled in size in nearly all categories from the first year it was offered.
New technologies are appearing faster than ever before, and as they do, new hacks and cyber-attack opportunities inevitably follow. It is thus important to have a strong understanding of the security efforts taken by organizations, including the latest standards, frameworks, and best practices.
