Secure Your Community: An Illini Secure Presentation for Faculty and Staff

In the ever-changing world of information security, teamwork is essential to successfully staving off threats. Illini Secure is a new program that will enable security liaisons in units across campus to assist in promoting privacy and security best practices, training, security evaluations, and increasing security awareness.

During the months of October and November, Information Technology (IT) groups from across campus will be conducting an IT Security assessment as part of the campus wide security program, Illini Secure.   The assessment will be used to help units and the University better manage and align IT Security risk with the University’s strategic goals.
During the assessment, faculty, researchers and grad students may be asked by IT staff to provide information related to how they utilize IT resources and what types of data (i.e. FERPA, health data, financial, etc.) they work with.

Attend a free 1-hour presentation by Chief Privacy and Security Officer Joe Barnes from Technology Services to learn more about Illini Secure and how it impacts you, your research and teaching, and the mission of the University of Illinois.

When: Wednesday, October 12. 12-1pm

Where: 126 iSchool (formerly GSLIS). 501 E. Daniel St.

Key goals of the Illini Secure program include:

  • Understanding the IT infrastructure

  • Understanding the business and research of the university
