Information Security Working Group (SecWOG)

SecWOG is the OSU Information Security Working Group.  SecWOG membership is restricted to faculty and staff only, and its meetings are facilitated by the Enterprise Security Group.

SecWOG meetings are held in the Thompson Library (Room 165).  Unless otherwise noted, meetings will begin promptly at 3:30 PM on the third Monday of the month and are scheduled to last until 5:00 PM.

  • On a bi-monthly schedule, meetings will be dedicated to an Information Risk Management Awareness Program topic. For those maintaining a professional certification, Continuing Educational Units (CEUs) will be awarded to attendees upon request.
  • At least once a year, meetings will be an open forum where OSU community members can discuss and present issues surrounding information security problems and practices.

If you have any questions concerning the SecWOG meetings, about an upcoming presentation, or if you wish to suggest topics or volunteer to speak at an open forum meeting, please send an email to OCIO Enterprise Security Risk Management.

For those who wish to be notified of upcoming SecWOG activities, an Exchange Distribution Group has been established on the University Email Service to schedule meetings and notify members.
