October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month!

Learn to protect yourself and UC during National Cyber Security Awareness Month

You’ve read the headlines. Organizations big and small, including even large retailers and mega companies, are not immune to data breaches and hackers’ increasingly sophisticated schemes. It seems daunting and you may ask yourself, “What can I do?”

You can protect yourself — and the university — from becoming victims by staying vigilant.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) and a good time to remind ourselves that the information and systems we use to carry out UC’s mission of teaching, research, and public service must be safeguarded. Technological protections alone are not always enough. Keeping that information secure is a shared responsibility, and everyone at UC has an opportunity to protect it.
