It’s October and the 2013 National Cyber Security Awareness Month is here!

This a public awareness campaign that is sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security and supported by private and public organizations alike, including many institutions of higher education.

During the month of October, the ITCS IT Security team will be reaching out to the ECU community to raise awareness of the threats to our personal information and to share best practices for protecting ourselves online. IT Security will dedicate each week of October to a different cyber security issue:

Week 1 – You Are the Target: Explore why you ARE a target in the digital world and protecting yourself online at work and at home.

Week 2 -Social Engineering: How to identify and respond to social engineering attacks—both technical and non-technical.

Week 3 – Social Networking: Weigh the risks of posting your private information on social networking sites, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, and helpful steps to protecting you and the University online.

Week 4 – Passwords: Explore the value of strong passwords and protecting your passwords from others.

Stay tuned!
