This year marks the tenth anniversary of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). NCSAM is observed throughout the month of October to increase the awareness of cyber security threats and techniques to safeguard against them.

As a NCSAM Champion, Wentworth will be providing frequent tips and articles throughout the month on how you can better protect your data and computing devices from security threats such as malware, phishing emails, and identity theft. Each Friday of this month, the Information Security Office we will share an article that is relevant to you. Topics will range from recognizing a “phishing” email to best practices for password management. In addition, we will be relaunching the Information Security website this month with additional information and resources, as well as a look at where we are headed with the Information Security Plan at WIT. Finally, we will be taking this show on the road with presentations on cyber security threats, data privacy, and information security best practices. If you would like to have the Institute’s Information Security Officer come to your department or group, please email infosecurity@wit.edu to schedule a presentation.

Follow us on Twitter @InfoSec_WIT for more on NCSAM, security news, and resources for improving your information security practices.
