IT security is the responsibility of each member of the community. By leveraging existing university governance structures, collaborating with departments, and using a multitude of communication tools, the University of North Carolina at Wilmington has developed a layered approach to IT security and created a culture of security, which has resulted in a better network and improved data security for the community. As an example, we ensure that Computrace is installed on university-owned computers (and provide it for students at a discount). This program garnered the 2010 EdTech Digest IT Security Office Recognition Award and, most recently, UNCW won the Center for Digital Government's Cybersecurity Leadership and Innovation Award in 2013.
