The U Needs You to do Your Part to be Cyber Smart

Cybersecurity isn't only a shared responsibility, it's an individual responsibility. You are the first line of defense against cyberattacks.

As part of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, UIT’s Information Security Office (ISO) is providing University of Utah community members the tools and resources they need to improve their digital habits and to protect themselves and the university from online threats. Please consider taking a few moments to visit the Cybersecurity Awareness Month website and check up on your digital hygiene.

If everyone does their part, the University of Utah and University of Utah Health will be safer and more secure for our students, patients, faculty, staff, and guests.

Do your part. Be cyber smart.
