SPAR - Security Preparedness and Response


October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month! Head over to our dedicated webpage to find some games that will help teach you and your family about cybersecurity. We have a scavenger hunt, Wordle games throughout the month and each week will introduce a new online game to play. 

The Office of Cybersecurity serves as fundamental technical safeguard for UTHSC. We promote an environment of great ethical standards and observe numerous regulatory risks by:

  • Advancing effective ways to prevent security risk through collaboration
  • Educating employees and the student body about information security
  • Identifying security risks faced by the University.
  • Encouraging an ethical environment that encourages information security preventions
  • Promoting awareness of information security through outreaching events
  • Effective training in the numerous areas of information security
  • Providing a workplace that enables employees to participate in the compliance program without fear of retribution.
