Security Awareness

April 2nd, 2015 No comments

The ITS is starting a program to enhance our security awareness level, addressing risks both as individuals and as a college. This education will be a continual process with different topics. Topics will include “Password Security”, “Viruses and Spam” Securing your Data”, and “Mobile Security”.

These issues are important to Augustana College and to all individual users.

We will educate our users in multiple ways.  Emails will be sent out on a regular basis informing users of different security risks.  There will be short videos and quizzes with chances to win gift cards.  Last but not least we will have a security week in conjunction with the technology fair which will be held in October.
