Security Events

To promote cybersecurity education and awareness, the Information Security Office hosts Security Awareness events, trainings, and other meetings to help departments around campus in their own efforts:


ShredFest is an annual event co-sponsored by IT Services and the Office of General Counsel. During ShredFest, a mobile shredder from ERTH Systems Shredding allows for the disposal of both University and personal, confidential documents. Any faculty, staff, or student may bring documents to ShredFest. For departments, this is an opportunity to bring confidential office and personal documents for secure, on-site shredding.
