The seventh UF Information Technology Security Awareness Day (ITSA Day) will be held Wednesday, Oct. 12, in the Reitz Union Auditorium. The all-day event is sponsored by the Office of the Vice Provost for Information Technology and will be hosted by the UF IT Security Team.

Security experts from the FBI, SANS, Microsoft, Cisco and others will present popular security issues such as attack trends and identity theft. Among other topics, SANS Chief Research Officer Johannes Ullrich will discuss the popular Zotob worm and Cisco CISSP Security Expert Domenic Seibold will cover IT security best practices and the risks associated with non-compliant machines. Vendors will be available to answer your questions in the Gallery outside the Auditorium.

Traditionally, ITSA Day is focused toward IT workers. This year ITSA Day will also provide content for UF students, faculty and staff such as ways to protect against identity theft. Bringing IT security awareness to UF and the community is a primary goal of the UF IT Security Team.
