October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which is a national annual campaign to raise awareness about the importance of cyber security.

During this month, the University Information Security Office (UISO) will host events, share information, and be available to raise awareness about the importance of cyber security. Our hope is to provide you with the tools and resources needed to stay safe online, and increase your resiliency and that of Fordham University in the event of a cyber incident.

• Free coffee at Rose Hill and Lincoln Center, where we will be available to discuss cyber security awareness
• Random phishing simulations via email to help reduce your susceptibility
• A refreshed Cyber Security Awareness training via Blackboard
• Daily Cyber Security Awareness via Facebook, Twitter, and the IT Security Blog
