National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2013 is HERE!
Itâ€™s that time of year again! October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), and this year marks the 10th anniversary of this event.
Help us raise awareness with your faculty, staff, and students this October.
We're launching National Cyber Security Awareness Month with an EDUCAUSE Live! webinar today, October 1 (1-2 pm EDT). Register here and join Larry Pesce, SANS Certified Instructor and Senior Security Analyst, InGuardians, as he discusses â€œ8 Mobile Device Security Steps.â€
If you plan on holding an event in October, please share your plans and any applicable URLâ€™s with this group or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org so your institution's activities can be included with our list of 2013 campus events: https://wiki.internet2.edu/confluence/display/itsg2/NCSAM+Resource+Kit
Here are 4 other ways for you and your institution to show support while creating a culture of cyber safety and security on your campus:
1) Become a NCSAM Champion: http://www.staysafeonline.org/ncsam/champions
2) Share the 2013 student video and poster contest winners: www.educause.edu/svc
3) Get social & join the #HigherEd #NCSAM conversation: http://www.educause.edu/blogs/vvogel/join-highered-ncsam-conversation
4) Read what you can do in less than a minute to all year round: http://www.educause.edu/blogs/vvogel/how-colleges-and-universities-can-support-ncsam
We hope you will join us in doing our part to increase awareness and improve cybersecurity on each of our campuses and across the higher education community.
