Faculty and Staff - September 20, 2019

Dear Colleagues,

As we come to the end of our first Campus Safety Week, I want to again thank the team that put the schedule together and the hundreds of individuals who participated in the activities. Our efforts will continue throughout the year; follow #WinthropCampusSafety365 for information on upcoming events.

On a related note, I want to mention that October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. This is the time Winthrop has chosen for all employees with a computer account to complete the mandatory cyber security awareness training. (Please note that employees who completed the training on or after July 1st, do NOT need to do anything.)

You will soon receive a personalized email with all the necessary information to sign in to the training portal. Everyone should watch the mandatory videos, but feel free to watch any of the others that may interest you. (Check with your supervisor about the best time to do that.) Remember, you have to complete the training before the end of October.

Also, be on the lookout for weekly cyber security “tips and tricks” in the Daily Digest.

Contact servicedesk@winthrop.edu or call 803/323-2400 if you have any difficulties watching the videos.

Thank you again for your interest in Winthrop’s safety and security.
