News & Announcements
IT@UC Office of Information Security (OIS) is pleased to announce the results from the campus Shred Event on Thursday, April 23, in McMicken Commons on West campus. Courtesy of sponsorship from Document Destruction, OIS collected, securely shredded and recycled 10,000 pounds (5 tons!) of documents received from 22 departments/colleges in only 4 hours at zero cost to the university. If you and/or your department or college were unable to participate in this first shred event, don’t worry. OIS will be hosting another one in the near future, so be looking out for a date! All personal and professional documents are accepted, but paper clips, hanging file folders and other metal/plastic must be removed from the documents in advance. (Staples are okay.) For additional information please visit the OIS website at http://www.uc.edu/infosec/services/shredding.html

"According to Bogdan Vykhovanyuk, vice president of information security at the University of Cincinnati, there are four ways to prove your identity digitally: by a password, something you have such as a cellphone or laptop, something you are and location. 'The more factors you combine, the more secure it is,' Vykhovanyuk said." To see the article please click on the announcement.
