KnighTVision is the student video production office at Middle Georgia State University. Student volunteers work on a news broadcast, short films and radio ads, for example, in order to polish their skills with these different media platforms. It includes coverage of campus events and interviews with students, faculty and staff. Informational videos are created to help new and prospective students get an idea of what campus life is like. The goal is to bring a video representation to MGA through the perspective of the people who make up our university community.
The Need for Cybersecurity Awareness
USG Cybersecurity detects about 2 million threats to USG information systems per day. On average, more than a month of time and effort is required to contain the typical security breach. Remediation efforts cost about $135 per record. In addition to remediation costs, USG organizations suffer damage to their reputation when we experience an information systems breach.
Moreover, mobility and miniaturization of systems enable attackers to use new ways to threaten the organization. Small mobile devices are harder to detect and neutralize when brought into our network. Small mobile devices are more convenient but also more easily stolen and lost. When we lose a mobile device, we also lose control of the information it stores.
Students, faculty and staff are invited to join the MGA Community Gardens!
The University will be hosting a number of events – all free and open to the public – to celebrate and remember the service of and sacrifices made by our nation’s military personnel. Events will take place in all five cities that are home to MGA campuses, and will include informational presentation, volunteer opportunities, and chances for MGA students to connect with both active duty and former military members.
Middle Georgia State University’s Schools of Information Technology, Education and Behavioral Sciences, and the Experiential Learning office are hosting the 2018 Big Fun Color Run, a 5K where runners get blasted with colored powder along the course. The race takes place at 8 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 17, at the University’s “Georgia Premier” cross country course located at 3450 Fulton Mill Road, Macon.
