October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month
Lights in your home. Security cameras. Social Media. Banking. Medical and academic records. So much of our day to day life is now digital. The physical safety of your devices and the security of your data is crucial. Staying safe online is so crucial that October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), which is now in its thirteenth year.
Technology Services is one of hundreds of private and public institutions around the country that are working with the National Cyber Security Alliance to raise awareness of cybersecurity during October. Throughout the month we will be sharing stories, tips, and presentations to help our students, faculty, and staff consider their own cybersecurity.
There are four areas of focus during the month:
- Week 1: Phishing
- Week 2: Secure Your Community (Illini Secure)
- 10/12/16 - Attend a free presentation by Technology Services to learn more about Illini Secure and how it impacts you, your research and teaching, and the mission of the University of Illinois. The slide deck from this presentation is available on U of I Box.
- Keeping Your Data Safe With Illini Secure
- Week 3: Secure Yourself
- Week 4: Secure Your Device
