Get the right tools to keep cyber ghosts and goblins away!

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM)! And, you’re cordially invited to attend the following security presentations to learn how to identify and protect sensitive data with the latest cyber tools.

Tool Talk I: Identity Finder and CloudLock
Noon to 1:30 p.m. Thursday Oct. 27
Room 106, Avent Ferry Technology Center

Protecting your data on campus is a very sensitive topic — one that needs further discussion. You are invited to learn more about the scanning tools in the Sensitive Information Identification and Response (SIIR) project, as well as the methods the Office of Information Technology (OIT) Security and Compliance employs to remediate the findings.

Jason Maners of OIT Shared Services and Kerry Digou of OIT Security and Compliance will demo Identity Finder, a discovery tool that searches for sensitive data on personal computers, network drives and servers, and CloudLock, a cloud-based solution that searches for sensitive information in Google Drive, ServiceNow, Office 365, and other cloud-based services. To register, visit Classmate.

Tool Talk II: Protect Your Services With Duo 2-Factor Authentication
Noon to 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31

Room 106, Avent Ferry Technology Center

Multi-factor authentication is becoming more commonplace as well as a requirement for many university systems. Using Duo 2-Factor Authentication, Darren Fallis and Kerry Digou of OIT Security and Compliance will demonstrate how multi-factor authentication plays a role in the administration of various campus services and will discuss preferred strategies to integrate Duo into your campus systems. To register, visit Classmate.

At both events, a pizza luncheon will be served, and attendees will have the opportunity to win great door prizes!

These events are sponsored by the Office of Information Technology, the Department of Computer Science, ePartners Program, and the NC State Engineering Foundation.
