October marks the fifteenth annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month
(NCSAM) sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security. The goal of NCSAM is to increase the awareness of the cybersecurity landscape and to bring awareness to various strategies we all can use to keep our information protected. It is our shared responsibility to protect ourselves, our colleagues, our family members, and K-State’s valuable information and technology resources.
Information Technology Services is sponsoring various events and activities throughout the month of October including:
- Conducting presentations/training.
- Providing sessions for various student clubs on careers in information security and information technology.
- Sharing tips and best practices via K-State Today and Twitter.
- Hosting Shred Day.
- Encouraging the campus to participate by spreading the word of how to stay safe online.
- Culminating in “Dark Tales from the Net” – a discussion of horror stories about sharing too much information.
- And more.
On Mon., Oct. 1, ITS will kick off the month with a State of IT Security presentation by Chad Currier, Chief Information Security Officer.
This presentation will be 1:30-2:30 p.m. Registration is required. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
