Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October has been jam-packed with campus activities, but as we get ready to celebrate Halloween this weekend, we wanted to let you know that October is also Cybersecurity Awareness Month. 

Now in its 18th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month was launched by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and ensure that all individuals and organizations have the information and tools they need to be safer and more secure online.

While Cybersecurity Awareness Month may be observed every October, we remind you to do your part and educate yourself to be cyber smart throughout the year.
