NCSAM 2012 is Wrapping Up! What's Next?

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2012 is wrapping up, so what’s next?

  1. Thank you to the higher education community for another very successful celebration of NCSAM! It was wonderful to hear about the fun, creative activities and events taking place on campuses around the world.
  2. Over 125 institutions shared their plans with us during the month of October. This is a new record since we started participating as a community in 2004. See what events took place by visiting our NCSAM Resource Kit.
  3. We hope that campuses will continue to educate and train students, staff, and faculty on the importance of security awareness throughout the year – not just in October. Be sure to check out the Cybersecurity Awareness Resource Library for materials or inspiration.
  4. Please consider celebrating Data Privacy Month on your campus in January. (Data Privacy Day is January 28, 2013.) EDUCAUSE will kick off DPM with a webinar on January 9, 2013, so save the date!

Finally, would like to thank the National Cyber Security Alliance and the Department of Homeland Security for making it easier for campuses to promote NCSAM throughout the month of October!
