Information Security Advocates

Members of the UW Information Security Advocates group have a desire to learn about and promote a culture of cybersecurity throughout the UW community. We are interested in both the technical and the human-driven aspects of information technology and ways to identify and manage risks.


  • Work with the Office of Information Security to develop and promote cybersecurity best practices and awareness materials
  • Develop and foster relationships that allow for the two-way exchange of information that can help us reduce cybersecurity risk
  • Participate in forums for the communication of cybersecurity issues to share expertise
  • Collaborate in problem solving, and foster collaboration and cooperation


  • InfoSec briefings are the 2nd Thursday of each month, 1:00-2:00
  • Contact for meeting notifications and location
  • RSVP required for meeting participation
  • Other meetings as needed
