Safe Computing: Learn What it Takes

October 3, 2007

October is National Cyber Security Month. In recognition, Computing and Information Services is sponsoring a series of events around the theme, “Safe Computing Doesn’t Happen by Accident.”

The series will feature expert presentations, a Safe Computing Fair and class, and distribution and display of educational materials.

All events are open to the university community and most are geared toward a general, non-technical audience. No registration is required.

UNH managers and their staff are urged to attend these events and it is recommended that each office send at least one person to the safe computing class to learn about protecting confidential information.

Free to all UNH computer users, the class will be held twice: Oct. 10, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (MUB 340) and Oct. 16, from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (MUB 302).

Speakers and panel discussion members will include, among others, Bud Fitch (N.H. deputy attorney general), Peter Lamonica (forensic computer specialist, BeNetSafe.Org), Tracy Mitrano (director of IT policy, Cornell University), Barbara Chung (U.S. education division, Microsoft) and Tom Franke, assistant vice president and CIO of CIS.

The speaker’s series will be held in the MUB Theater 1.
