Security Awareness Month

March has been designated “Security Awareness Month” at the University. A joint effort of the U.Va. Police, the Health System and the Department of Information Technology & Communication, the month’s events are designed to promote personal safety, security and privacy among community members.

The program’s theme, “Fight Back,” emphasizes that everyone can safeguard self and property and put would-be attackers on the defensive. Activities include security fairs at various locations around Grounds; a March 20 conference on cybercrime; a class in computer crime forensics for law enforcement and computing professionals; a “Computing Security 101” class; other tutorials in best security practices; and a security “tip of the day” available online.

For information and a calendar of events, see http://www.itc.virginia.edu/securityawareness/.
