Security Awareness Month


About the Workshops

October is recognized as National Cyber Security Awareness Month.  In support of this effort, the Division of IT will host our annual MU Security Awareness Month.   MU Security Awareness Month consists of a series of free workshops which will bring subject matter experts to MU for a variety of security related topics.  The intent is to educate MU faculty, staff, and students about computer and information security. 

This year's schedule consists of two half days of presentations for both the end-user audience and IT Professional community.  These workshops are open to all MU faculty, staff, and students, so please join us. Audience participation is encouraged, so bring your questions and take full advantage of the subject matter experts that will be on-hand to answer them!

2014 Schedule- Coming Soon!

ShredIT Event

Wednesday, June 11, 2014 from 2-4 pm (DO NOT DROP OFF ITEMS BEFORE 2 pm)
Collecting at MU Telecom Building- Loading Dock

The Division of IT will be hosting the fall ShredIT event!  ShredIT events are open to the University system, MU campus, and Hospital departments at no charge for University-owned equipment.  It’s time to dig out those old hard drives, CD’s, and other ancient data storage devices consuming space in your closets and desk drawers!  We recommend shredding any data storage devices that no longer have a useful life.  Visit http://infosec.missouri.edu/assets/device-disposal.html for more information.

Monthly Topic

Password Safety in the Digital Age

As children we would use passwords as a means to keep “intruders” out of our secret hideouts. While the context of how we use a password has changed since childhood, the necessity of having a strong password is now more important than ever. Today password protection is your first line of defense against most cyber threats.
