National Cyber Security Awareness Month

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). Sponsored by the National Cyber Security Division within the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, NCSAM has, since its inception in 2004, promoted educating the public about cyber security threats, how to recognize and prevent them, and how to remain safe while online.

In a series of articles presented over the next few weeks on the Technology Service Center blog, we’ll address some of the most pressing cyber security issues and how they affect the average online user. These articles will cover such topics as identity theft and how to prevent it, and scams, phishing, hoaxes, and other tricks of the cyber theft trade. You’ll find these, and other pertinent IT Information at:  http://sites.sju.edu/oit/

In addition, we’re also gearing up for a presentation in October entitled Cyber Security: Protecting Your Data – Protecting Yourself. Keep an eye out for these and other upcoming events and announcements.
