SECURING THE FUTURE -

The Implications of the latest technologies for Tertiary Education

Tuesday 21st April, 1998

REAL COLLEGES - VIRTUAL WORLDS

John Gray's Vision of the future - "Our Colleges as service centres for their whole communities". Local, national and international partnership will help to deliver virtual libraries of learning material to which the colleges will add local value in order to meet their community's needs for Lifelong Learning. The potential for business of all kinds to benefit from Information & Communications Technology is considerable - UK Government's UFI and National Grid for Learning initiatives reflect a national recognition of the importance this has for organisations like ours. Our strategy is to work with a whole range of partners, public and private, to build Lifelong Learning provision in our urban/rual community. John will be demonstrating this vision as a reality, with the application of Microsoft technology used throughout his college.

SECURING YOUR NETWORK

With the recent development of the Internet as a commercial network, it has become possible to reach a vast source of information with a simple access tool, the Web Browser. This has in turn created a significant demand for similar access to information sources within private networks/Intranets, enhancing communications between employees, customers and suppliers. As the access to this information is opened up, particularly where public access or remote dial-up services are to be provided, new challenges arise in establishing the security measures you need to protect information that you wish to keep secure. Cisco systems will explain some of the issues and solutions which can be built into your network/Intranet to maintain flexible yet robust security measures to help meet these challenges.

VOICE COMMAND & CHARACTER RECOGNITION IN ELECTRONIC DOCUMENT MANAGEMENT

In this session NCSi will discuss solving the form data capture mountain in Student Registration, Course Selection, Attendance Records & Student Surveys.

VIRTUAL REALITY ON THE INTERNET

Superscape will be discussing Virtual Reality on The Internet

IMPLEMENTING A MULTI-LAYERED COMPUTER SECURITY SOLUTION

Has the time arrived for IT managers to consider seeking the solution to the growing array of threats posed to PC and Networks from one software package?

DATA RECOVERY AND THE YEAR 2000

Modern business processes are dependent upon computers and, necessarily more and more critical data is being stored and processed on systems. Data is susceptible to numerous risks and for myriad reasons it can be rendered inaccessible. Professional data recovery services can recover this data and also provide a valuable service in respect to the Year 2000 problems.

SECURING THE ENTERPRISE

Computer Associates will be taking a look at the issues associated with creating a secure infrastructure for today's distributed and heterogeneous IT environment. The presentation will look at all areas of security including network, database as well as server and desktop.
