Building a Culture of IT Security Awareness

Wednesday, May 07 | 10:15am - 11:15am ET | Grand Ballroom Salon B
Session Type: Professional Development

IT security is the responsibility of each member of the community. By leveraging existing university governance structures, collaborating with departments, and using a multitude of communication tools, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington has developed a layered approach to IT security and created a culture of security, which has resulted in a better network and improved data security for the community. As an example, we ensure that Computrace is installed on university-owned computers (and provide it for students at a discount). This program garnered the 2010 EdTech Digest IT Security Office Recognition Award and, most recently, UNCW won the Center for Digital Government's Cybersecurity Leadership and Innovation Award in 2013.

 

OUTCOMES:
Learn how to use governance and collaboration to build cross-campus IT security awareness * Learn how to establish programs and outreach such as certifications for system admins and new student, faculty, and employee training * Learn how to leverage and collaborate with other campus initiatives to thread in IT security
