October marks the 10th anniversary of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). NCSAM was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure that Americans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online.ncsam10_bnr1

Carolina’s Information Security Office, part of Information Technology Services, is joining with other universities to help promote NCSAM and will feature a different topic in cyber security each week in October. The topics range from sharing safety tips about securing mobile devices to avoiding being a victim of identity theft.

The Information Security Office will promote NCSAM through mailings to faculty, staff and students, events in the Pit, a Cyber Security Town Hall meeting and a student competition to see who can develop the best public service video based on the motto “STOP. THINK. CONNECT.” The student who submits the best video will be awarded a prize.
