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.
