Is your division or department cyber aware?

This 50-minute session will cover the Information Security Awareness Initiative at UofT.

Beginning in October of 2016 the University initiated a 7-month project to set the path for creating a culture of cyber security awareness across the institution.  The project focusses on addressing cyber security awareness across four key audience groups including; Faculty, Students, Staff, and IT professionals across the academy.

The Tri-Campus effort kicked off with a colorful banner campaign for Cyber Awareness month in October and followed with multiple outreach and educational activities including Social Media, pop up booths, an educational website, Lunch and Learn sessions, Staff onboarding, and phishing simulation exercises.

Here we will introduce you to the team and provide an update on activities and the path forward for this important initiative.
