Cyber Security Awareness

ITS takes security seriously both on and off campus. Throughout the year, we run a number of Cyber Security Awareness campaigns, which include events and workshops, to promote and educate security awareness. This month our focus is on Internet of Things.

Join us at Cyber Security Events to test your knowledge, learn new things, and win prizes!
