As of January 2019, the world’s internet users spend an average of 6 hours and 42 minutes online each day. That’s almost an entire work shift or the last two theatrical film releases of “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy combined.
Now think about all the devices you own that connect to the internet, either automatically or when prompted. You can see how we’re connected now more than ever — and thus more vulnerable to cyberthreats.
That’s why cybersecurity is so important.
UIT is pleased to announce that Corey Roach has been named the University of Utah's permanent chief information security officer (CISO) effective Tuesday, October 1, 2019. Roach has served as interim CISO since July. The CISO reports to University of Utah Chief Information Officer Steve Hess and University of Utah Health Chief Information Officer James Turnbull, is a member of the UIT Leadership team, and leads the UIT Information Security Office.
