I have spent the last few days at the EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Security Professionals Conference. Of all the conferences that I have attended over the years, this might have been the best. Not only were the logistics very well taken care of (I did not detect many problems), the sessions that I attended were relevant, interesting, and of an acceptable quality.
In addition, I was able to put a face to many of the names that I have seen in the past year, and I have enjoyed it a lot. Attending the conference was definitely worth my time (and my employer's money). Well done, EDUCAUSE!
