New Resources for Security Awareness

Having trouble with security awareness at your university or college? Need some new ideas? Trying to figure out what to do for National Cyber Security Awareness Month?

The members of the EDUCAUSE Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) Awareness and Training Working Group have created some wiki-based resources to help you with your security awareness initiatives.

We’ve created two main resources.

  • The Quick Start Guide (https://wiki.internet2.edu:443/confluence/x/sRpG) provides ideas and resources for launching a security awareness program. Topics range from establishing an Information Security Awareness Program to different techniques and vehicles for “getting the message out.” The Quick Start Guide is useful for both beginning and advanced security awareness programs.
  • The Detailed Instruction Manual (https://wiki.internet2.edu:443/confluence/x/yBpG) provides additional topics around selected security awareness initiatives including campus-specific efforts and tips on communicating specific issues.

Check out these resources. The A&T Working Group is delighted to share their ideas with you and they’re there to help you be successful. They have a wide range of expertise and they believe you’ll find these materials valuable.

Best Security Awareness Videos for College Students

Each fall, the RIT Information Security Office provides a Digital Self Defense orientation to first year students. The session helps the students understand the information security threats they will face. We also communicate their responsibility for keeping themselves and others safe online. As you might imagine, keeping the attention of these students midway through their orientation week can be challenging. To help hold their interest, we use a number of security awareness videos in our presentation.

The list of videos below includes an amateur and professional videos and student-created entries in the EDUCAUSE Annual Security Video contest.
