Securing The Human: A Year-Round Approach To Increasing The Awareness of Cyber Security Threats

On a yearly basis, Colorado Mesa University provides information security awareness training to all employees as required by State statute. This training is entitled "Keeping Our Campus Secure" and it is designed to be a comprehensive review of information security topics that should be at the front of our minds on a daily basis. As with any topic, it's difficult to recall information if you're not exposed to it on a regular basis. So, the CMU Information Security Team has provided you with access to a new cutting edge information security awareness program from the SANS Institute entitled, Securing The Human, or S.T.H. You will be seeing helpful information designed specifically to educate and protect you from information security threats. Please take a look at the links at the top of the page for more information and if you suspect an information security incident, please email [email protected] or contact Mike Kansgen, the Information Security Officer, at [email protected].
