CCE is one of the nine strategic plans, outlined in the university’s planning process. A growing body of research and practice shows that teaching, research and service learning activities engaged in local or global communities are high-impact practices benefiting students, communities and society at large. This presentation will discuss the many facets of UNC Engagement with a particular focus on academic engagement and ongoing projects and partnerships.

Participants will learn more about what engagement is, what it means for us as an institution, what impact we are having, and how they can get involved.

Advanced Security Training for Staff
December 10, 2014
Presented by:
Matt Langford, Chief Information Security Officer & Forrest Swick, IM&T Security
Candelaria 1375
11:30 - 1:00pm

This training module will focus on more advanced techniques to defend against identity theft, phishing, and password attacks.  The training will include a short explanation of why we are being targeted by these attacks and the remainder of the training will be on techniques and tools that individuals can use to protect themselves.

  • Protect yourself from identity theft.  Having your identity stolen takes years to overcome and it is preventable.
  • Protect your reputation.  Succumbing to a phishing attack means that your email will be seen by thousands of people as you send them spam email.
  • Protect your personal and professional information.  The recent successful “hacks” of the iCloud are mostly related to weak or bad password policy on the part of the user.
