October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. NCSAM is a non-profit, public-private (with EDUCAUSE) partnership focused on cyber security awareness. Because the cyberspace used by our community often transports sensitive information such as financial records, grades, proprietary research, or personally identifiable information--and because of the increase in sophisticated threats--it is essential that everyone develop an awareness of how to protect this sensitive information and be safer and more secure online.
NCSAM’s continuing theme, “Our Shared Responsibility,” reflects the notion that no one person, department, or college is responsible for the security of the Internet. Everyone must do their part.
Tips on how to do this are available at the Safe Computing Website and throughout the month under the NCASM banner in the Daily Piper.
