Information security in the workplace can often seem perplexing, leading most employees to quickly dismiss its relevance to their job function. Others may understand the basics of information security, but they assume that security incidents do not occur often enough to spend their time learning how to prevent them.
The truth of the matter is that incidents occur quite often, and the vast majority of these incidents can be easily prevented if best practices and UNT policies are followed.
As an employee, you are responsible for safeguarding the data you interact with. Your network manager provides help with safeguarding the data, but there are still some things you need to know, especially if you work with sensitive data frequently.
Fortunately, CITC Information Security has recently released an information security short course for UNT faculty and staff, which can be accessed through WebCT Vista. The course entitled “Defensive Computing” was designed to quickly go over the important topics of security, and should take no longer than an hour to complete.
For information on signing up for this course individually or registering your department to take it, contact Gabe Marshall at Gabe.Marshall@unt.edu or dial ext: 4062.
