IT Security Awareness

Security awareness means knowing how to protect University and personal information assets. The UISO has many resources to increase and support security awareness.

UISO Online Security Training for Employees
A new security awareness program will be launched by the UISO in September 2018 for Fordham employees. The online course will help employees recognize security risks and cyber threats so they may better protect the University and themselves.

Malicious Traffic on the Internet
The Infocon monitor below reflects changes in malicious traffic on the web that may affect Internet connectivity not only at Fordham, but anywhere: your home, your workplace, and other public and private network connections will.

Every host connected to the Internet is affected by heavy traffic due to worms and viruses. Some cause more disruptions than others. When a worm or virus has been identified and the number of affected users declines, the network disruptions decrease, as well.

The Infocon monitors the condition of the Internet infrastructure only. It does NOT monitor Fordham University, particular countries, companies, or institutions.
