Minnesota Alumni Events

Join us to reconnect with fellow graduates!

Cardinal Stritch University is committed to staying connected with our Minnesota Alumni. Launched at our June 2, 2013 alumni event at the Minnesota History Center, we will be hosting quarterly alumni engagement events for all Minnesota Stritch alumni to enjoy.

These events will focus on the three main topics: Social Networking, Professional Development, and Community Outreach/Involvement. Alumni events will take place in both the Twin Cities and Rochester/Owatonna, so traveling far distances to participate will not be a challenge.

Upcoming Events:

October 2014: Cyber Security CEO Breakfast

Building Security and Business Leaders to Protect Your Company's Future

Wednesday, Oct. 22
7:15 – 8:15 a.m.
The Commons Hotel
Pinical Room – 2nd Floor
615 Washington Ave. SE
Minneapolis, MN 55414

Cost: Free to attend with invitation

Description: How do you develop the next generation of information security leaders who will protect your company from an increasing number of cyber security threats? Currently, many who rise through the information technology ranks have the necessary technical background to succeed but lack awareness of the broader business issues that today's IT leaders must contend with. This panel of current IT executives will discuss the issues they face today and the qualities that will be required for the leaders of tomorrow. They will also explain why business professionals must start to understand that cyber security is not just an IT issue, it is an important factor that needs to be woven into everyday management practices.
