Smartphone Security Awareness

  Posted on: December 20, 2013

On December 17, 2013 from 11am–2pm, the ITS Information Security Office hosted a SmartPhone Security Awareness event open to all staff and faculty. Over 100 people participated and ten ITS staff members provided individual training sessions at six stations. By visiting each station with their passports individuals received information and a stamp indicating they had reviewed that topic. Topics included: ensuring password protection was enabled, setting up Eduroam secure wireless access, Bluetooth privacy tips, updating operating systems, installing a password vault, and connecting to Outlook with active-sync. All participants who completed the session were entered in a draw for a Samsung Galaxy tablet and received a Certificate of Attendance.

Positive feedback from the event indicates people appreciated of learning how to use their phone better and more securely. If you are interested in attending our next session, please email infosecurity@tru.ca.
