You are invited to join the ITS Information Security Office in celebrating 5 years of cyber security awareness at KSU.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of the National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) founded by the National Cyber Security Alliance and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. KSU has been participating in NCSAM since 2009 and is proud to continue the tradition of Cyber Security Awareness. Tens of thousands of NCSAM participants in the United States will be participating by posting tips to stay safe and secure on social networks, educating customers and employees, holding events, and more. You can make a difference in the global cyber security atmosphere by remembering to STOP. THINK. CONNECT. Take security precautions, understand the consequences of your actions and behaviors online, and enjoy the benefits of the Internet.
KSU’s Cyber Security Awareness Day answers the call of the National Cyber Security Alliance to raise awareness and encourages students, staff, faculty, and the community to protect their computers and themselves from an evolving cyber-threat landscape.
The theme for this year’s campaign is “Our Shared Responsibility”. The Internet is an integral part of our lives at home, school, and work. Our economy and much of the infrastructure we rely on uses the Web to communicate and provide us with our basic services.
Our cyber infrastructure is only as strong as the weakest link. No individual, business, academic or government entity is solely responsible for our cyber security. Instead, every individual shares the responsibility to secure their part of cyberspace. While we may each accomplish this task using different methods, we should all understand how our actions may impact cyber security. Using the Internet safely makes it more secure for everyone. Remember to STOP. THINK. CONNECT.
