October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month! Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a global effort to help everyone stay protected whenever and however they connect. The overarching theme for the month is, “Do Your Part, #BeCyberSmart.” The Office of Information Security is proud to be a Cybersecurity Awareness Month Champion, supporting online safety throughout the year. We’re here to help every member of our community gain the knowledge and tools to #BeCyberSmart.

This year, the main focus areas of Cybersecurity Awareness Month will revolve around:

  • Understanding and following general security hygiene for connected devices and home networks, whether on campus or remotely
  • The importance of connected devices in the future of healthcare
  • Strategies for managing protected information
  • How users can protect themselves with password management and multifactor authentication.
  • Awareness and reporting of phishing and social engineering campaigns
