President’s Blog: Ethics Awareness Week

Since the dawn of human conscience and human civilization, our capacity as humans to choose our moral compass and our behavioral actions have been part of what it truly means to be a person.  In recent centuries various disciplines have examined how we are influenced and affected in those choices, but the underlying concept of our “free will” is the basis of what defines us as moral, ethical actors.


Ethics and Cybersecurity Awareness

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.
