National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2011 is HERE!

It’s that time of year again! October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Help us raise awareness with your faculty, staff, and students in October by promoting National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM).

  • We will start the month off with an EDUCAUSE Live! webcast on October 4 (1-2 pm EDT). Register now to listen to Jenny Menna (DHS), Bridget-Anne Hampden (Department of Education), and HEISC co-chairs Larry Conrad and Michele Norin as they talk about “Cybersecurity as a Shared Responsibility: Stop, Think, and Connect.”
  • If you plan on holding an event in October, please share your plans and any applicable URL’s with this group or send an e-mail to so your institution's activities can be included with our list of 2011 campus events.
  • This year the EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) have made it even easier to get involved. Suggested resources:

If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Higher Education Information Security Council or NCSA.
