October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Technology plays such an integral role in our daily lives—everything from paying bills to controlling our TV lineup is managed online. The wealth of information stored online about each one of us is staggering. As part of Security Awareness Month will be looking at how to keep you safe and protected both online and at work.
Just take a moment to consider the various accounts you have and the services you use. These companies have information about your spending patterns, your entertainment patterns, and your various interests right at their fingertips. Although most of us enjoy the convenience of having all of this data stored and synchronized across multiple devices, there is a cost to having this data propagated everywhere. The protection of this information starts with you.
Throughout the month of October, OIT will send you weekly emails that will help you increase your knowledge and awareness about cybersecurity.
As part of Cyber Security Awareness Month, we will be hosting our first Security Showdown on the afternoon on October 21st. Go ahead and mark your calendars. The theme this year is “I work with Superheroes” and if you know of any cybersecurity superheroes, we want to know about them. We will have more information about this interactive event in the coming weeks.
