National Cyber Security Awareness Month
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month
Cybersecurity Awareness Month – observed every October – was developed with the purpose of raising awareness about the importance of cybersecurity and ensure that all individuals and organizations have the information and tools they need to be safer and more secure. This year, our campus is focusing on the next generation of security through AI usage. Cybersecurity can seem overwhelming, but remember, there are many ways to keep your data and online presence protected. Whether on the job, at home or at school, you can make a huge difference – now and in the future. Throughout the month of October, SJSU will host events that include guest speakers and contests with swags and prizes. Please see our NCSAM page for more event and resource information! Do Your Part. #BeCyberSmart.
