ITS has joined forces with Risk Management to produce the 2009 Security and Safety calendar. We are holding a poster competition during the fall semester to help create the images for this calendar. The goal of the project is to educate the campus community on current security threats and best practices and change the way people approach data security and emergency management.
The security posters must be original designs and focus on any of the following topics:
Click on the theme to view the various messages or security tips that will appear in the calendar along with the poster. You do not need to include the verbiage listed under each topic, but the message of your poster should be consistent with the messages as outlined.
