State of IT Security presentation at 1:30 today

Cybersecurity Awareness MonthThe overarching message of this year’s National Cybersecurity Awareness Month theme ‘If you Connect it, Protect it,’ dives into the importance of keeping connected devices safe and secure from outside influence.

More than ever before, connected devices have been woven into society as an integral part of how people communicate and access services essential to their well being. Data collected from these devices can detail highly specific information about a person or business which can be exploited by bad actors for their personal gain.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month aims to shed light on these security vulnerabilities while offering guidance surrounding simple security measures to limit the susceptibility of threats for commonly used devices.

Join us from 1:30-2:30 p.m., Thursday, Oct.1. for Josh McCune’s “State of IT Security” presentation to learn how to keep your devices safe. Other topics include:

  • Attack Metrics — cyber attacks at K-State
  • Best practices for securely working from home
  • Future of cybersecurity at K-State

Registration is required. Zoom information will be sent in a confirmation email.

When it comes to cybersecurity, knowledge is power. Join us this October in the fight against cybercrime.
