A top priority – safety and security

Posted on September 24, 2018 by

Cyber Security Awareness Month - October 2018 - Security matters every day

The safety and security of our students, staff and faculty is a top priority at the University of Toronto. That concern and commitment to safety and security extends far and wide to the online and cyber realms.

Being aware and practicing sound online behaviour and use helps keep us all safe, information secure and systems free from viruses, malware, phishing attempts and more. Next months’ Cyber Security Awareness Month campaign will help spread the word about just that.

One of the campaigns’ underlying themes is that online and information security is not a once a year afterthought or saved for a special occasion. But something that is embedded into everything we do – every day.

I encourage you to get involved this October and beyond.
