Cybersecurity Awareness Month Newsletter

Revised and Updated Policies 2022

The Washington University in St. Louis Office of Information Security (OIS) supports education, research, and clinical care by protecting systems and data for everyone at our institution. Information security is essential to every member of our community, and we all share personal responsibility for ensuring the security of our systems. We continuously improve our systems and strategies to meet our diverse users’ needs, and we regularly update our policies to reflect changes in the information security landscape.

To adapt to changes in the information security landscape, the OIS regularly reviews and updates our policies. In addition to continuously monitoring our information systems’ health and regularly reviewing our policies, we engage in direct outreach with our campus throughout the month of October by participating in Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Throughout the month, we offer events, activities, and resources to help our users keep themselves, their data, and our institution secure.
