Connecticut Higher Education Roundtable for Information Security

Connecticut Higher Education Roundtable on Information Security (CHERIS) is a forum of Higher Education IT security professionals that meets quarterly to collaborate on IT solutions, discuss best practices, and share security challenges. CHERIS was founded in 2012 by UConn and Quinnipiac University. In 2022, after years of inactivity and at the request of CCSU, ECSU, and Wesleyan, CEN re-chartered and re-started the roundtable and committed to providing administrative support to the co-chairs on a go forward basis, as well as help sustain the co-chair roles over time.
