October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month – Week 3

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). This annual initiative is led by the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Department of Homeland Security to raise continued awareness of cybersecurity challenges we all encounter and the behaviors we can adopt to overcome them.

In observance of this year’s NCSAM, the ITCS Information Security Office is hosting several cybersecurity presentations throughout October. Each event features an expert speaker covering specific themes including:

  • Online Safety and Privacy at Home
  • Cybersecurity Careers
  • Protecting Yourself Online at Work
  • Safeguarding the Nation’s Critical Infrastructure

The Week 3 presentations center around cybersecurity careers. Please see our NCSAM webpage for more information on these great sessions!

Other speakers throughout the month include security executives from Microsoft, senior cyber operations officers from the U.S. military and seasoned IT professionals from ECU’s own ITCS department.
