UIT's Information Security Office recently launched a new Canvas course for University of Utah students discussing online safety and information security. The training also has been published to its training website and is available to the entire U community. The course and supplemental website focus on ways to enhance your cybersecurity, including creating stronger passwords, avoiding scams, and installing antivirus and system updates.
Corey Roach, Enterprise Security associate director in UIT's Information Security Office, has been named interim Chief Information Security Officer. Roach steps in for outgoing CISO Randy Arvay, who is taking on a new role as CISO at Duke University Health System in Durham, North Carolina.
While the General Data Protection Regulation applies only to those physically present in the European Union, the U and other organizations outside of the EU must follow the personal data regulations.
Dr. Randy Arvay, the U's CISO and 24-year U.S. Army veteran, recently moderated a panel discussion "U.S. Military Impact on Cybersecurity." Held at Gardner Commons, the event was co-sponsored by the Gardner Policy Institute and Veterans Support Center.
