Cyber Security Awareness Month

National Cyber Security Awareness Month


October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). NCSAM is a month out of the year in which the cybersecurity professional community come together to focus on cybersecurity and encourage others to exercise proper cyber hygiene.  The Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance have sponsored NCSAM since its inception in 2004.

The University of South Alabama’s Information Security Office has constructed important cyber security topics for each week in October.  Our topics this year include Keeping a Clean Machine, Locking Down Your Login, Connecting with Care, Being Web Wise, and Owning Your Online Presence. 

We will be in the Student Center from 10 am -2 pm on October 24 to provide information to our campus on Cyber Security.
