Register now for Network Architects Workshop 3

Registration is open for the third TERENA Network Architects workshop and the GEANT (GN3plus) 'Future Network' activity (JRA1) workshop, which are being hosted by NORDUnet in Copenhagen, Denmark. The events are being co-located for ease of travel. The TERENA workshop is open and free of charge for anyone to attend.

The Network Architects workshop will bring together people responsible for next-generation network architecture design and deployment. As the national research and education networks (NRENs) are all at different stages of the typical life-cycle - depending on their maturity, coverage, service portfolio, user community and funding model - it is expected that useful experiences and ideas can be shared.

Information Security Management SIG agreed during security, privacy and trust workshop

Participants at a recent workshop about security, privacy and trust agreed to create a new Special Interest Group (SIG) under TERENA, with the main focus on "Information Security Management". Based on their recommendations, TERENA has also changed the name and focus of the activity's webpage from CISO (Chief Information Security Officer) to Information Security Management.

The 'NREN Security Strategy Workshop' was held on 3-4 September 2014, organised by TERENA and SURFnet and hosted in the SURFnet offices in Utrecht, the Netherlands. Almost 30 participants attended from 16 organisations across 15 countries, including Canada and Australia as well as countries in and around Europe. Reaching a shared view about international collaboration among NRENs (national research and education networking organisations) on security, privacy and trust was the main aim of the workshop. The formation of the new SIG provides a platform for future collaboration in this area.
