Free shredding event—Information Security Awareness Week

  • Starts: 9:00 am on Tuesday, October 8, 2013
  • Ends: 5:00 pm on Thursday, October 10, 2013
BU Information Security is sponsoring a free shredding event the second week in October – Information Security Awareness Week! We are reaching out to you to help spread the word so people can take advantage of this free opportunity to get sensitive papers out of their office and properly destroyed. As part of the 3rd annual Information Security Awareness Week, BU Information Security will be bringing a shredding truck to locations around BU. Information Security personnel will be on hand to accept custody of your sensitive documents and ensure they are immediately shredded. If you have any paper containing sensitive information, CDs or old floppy disks that you would like to have destroyed, bring them to us at these locations: · 10/8 from 9-12 CRC East in the Granby St. Parking Lot · 10/9 from 11-1 BUMC between the School of Medicine and School of Public Health · 10/10 from 9-12 CRC West in the Parking Lot of Agganis Arena Similarly, if you have any old hard drives that need to be destroyed, we are available to help: · On BUMC, we will have personnel in the lobby of the School of Medicine on Wednesday and Friday from 11-1. They will be ready to answer questions about computer and information security, accept old hard drives or computers that you no longer need and make sure are properly taken care of. · On CRC, you can bring hard drives to the shred events listed above, but if you have a large amount of hard drives, please contact BU Information Security at 613-353-9004 to arrange for a pickup. (This message will also be sent directly to the technical contacts for your school.) Thank you for your support and best wishes for an excellent school year! Quinn R Shamblin
