October Is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

by Michigan Tech IT

Since 2004, the president of the United States and Congress have declared October to be Cybersecurity Awareness Month, helping individuals protect themselves online as threats to technology and confidential data become more commonplace. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCA) lead a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise cybersecurity awareness nationally and internationally.

Michigan Tech is proud to be a Cybersecurity Awareness partner. This year’s campaign theme is “See Yourself in Cyber.” Cybersecurity may seem like a complex subject, but ultimately, it’s all about people. Throughout October, we’ll share tips and information to help you make smart decisions about cybersecurity at work, home and school.
