What is Information Security Awareness?
Information Security is a two part program; we are not only interested in defending you from threats and removing the likelihood that your information will be attacked, but also how to help you limit your own risk from attack. By doing this we not only help you protect yourself but you help us by knowing what to do in the event that something is not normal. We do this by speaking to groups, working with individuals who are having issues, and by creating a safe enviroment for you to use your systems.
What does North Georgia do to raise security Awareness?
Here at North Georgia the division of Information Security Services offers presentations to any group on campus that would like us to present to them. We offer different presentations depending on what the orginization would like. Our presentations range from broad topics to specific concerns of the time, past presentations have included topics such as Facebook, Identity Theft, Computer Safety, and General Computer Security. We offer free services to students which includes a 1 year antivirus subscription and our newest service, Identity Finder! Identity Finder searches your computer for sensitive information such as your Social Security Number, Bank Account information, and Credit Card numbers. we offer free training classes which will be posted in the digest for anyone interested in using the software.
