The University of Cincinnati believes that a strong awareness of information security issues is essential to all students, faculty, and staff. The IT@UC Office of Information Security (OIS) is constantly researching trends and issues, as well as adding relevant information to this web page.

To increase awareness, OIS has many years of experience in creating custom security materials. While some may be free, others might require a fee. If applicable, the fee will be based off of UCIT's broadband recharge fees. If you have any questions or require assistance with a specific need, contact OIS at

Another area of effort is the development of training. OIS periodically offers training courses in various areas and will publicize them to the target community as they are scheduled.
