Communicating with institutional customers about safeguarding their private and personal information, preventing digital copyright infringement, and increasing their awareness of a hostile Ethernet environment involves a balanced mixture of power, humility, focus, and style. Warnings about phishing and other security concerns often go unheeded or provoke incendiary replies. "What I can see is what I can take" perceptions result in digital copyright violations. Vocal community members continue to demand increased protection from IT for their institutional and/or personal data and resources. In this session, three Texas universities with widely different populations will compare and contrast how they communicate critical security messages to their communities.
