As a part of the Institute’s Security Awareness, Training, and Education program, monthly e-newsletters with tips and advice dealing with IT security issues are sent to all UTIA employees. Each month the CISO will use the e-newsletter to feature current threats, e.g., spear phishing, as well as reminders, like not sharing passwords, updates to policies or procedures, and general IT security information. These e-newsletters help keep us all aware of security matters while also educating us on what to look for and how to report problems. This page contains the last 12 e-newsletters, as well as the topics covered in each. Newsletters beyond the past 12 months are found in the Knowledge Base under the Security Awareness category.
