Security Awareness at Eastern Michigan University - Allan Edwards, EDUCAUSE Review

At Eastern Michigan University (EMU), information security is a challenge. We in the IT department understand and recommend security best practices but cannot always insist on them to the degree that we would like.

Because of this, much of our focus needs to be on training and education. But how can an IT department, which is small compared to the entire university, make a meaningful impact?
