Welcome to National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Posted on: October 8th, 2015 by Jim Pardonek No Comments

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), conducted every October since 2004, this national public awareness campaign is intended to encourage everyone to protect their computers and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure. Cyber security requires vigilance 365 days per year. However, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), the primary drivers of NCSAM, coordinate to shed a brighter light on what home users, schools, businesses and governments need to do in order to protect their computers, and data. This year, the LUC Information Security Staff will be launching a new awareness video series, Loyola Aware. Each month we will release a new video generally 4 minutes in length on a different topic. This month’s topic is “You Are The Target” Please see page 2 for instructions on how to access the modules.
