The 14th annual Security at University of Michigan IT (SUMIT) was held on Thursday, October 25. If you could not attend in person, or if you want to see it again, you’re in luck: Videos and photos of all SUMIT 2018 presentations are available to watch from the SUMIT 2018 website (and listed below). Presentations from previous SUMIT conferences are also available on the events page.
SUMIT is an annual symposium designed to raise awareness and educate the community about important cyber security and privacy issues. This free event is hosted every October during National Cyber Security Awareness Month and presents a rare opportunity to hear nationally recognized experts discuss the latest cyber security and privacy topics and trends.
