Cyber security continues to grow in importance, and we all play a role in today’s highly connected world of systems, information, and technology.
MSU Information Technology helps celebrate National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) by promoting safe computing tips via our Tech at MSU Twitter account and supporting the MSU Security Summit on October 11.
Cyber security resources
We can all participate in NCSAM by taking a moment out of our busy lives to make sure we are following digital security best practices, such as safeguarding devices, being aware of phishing attempts, and crafting strong passwords.
MSU IT outlines best cyber security practices on the SecureIT website where you can learn about your roles and responsibilities in keeping yourself and MSU as an institution safe from cyber crime.
Additionally, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security partners with NCSAM to help ensure everyday individuals are able to implement strategies to increase online safety and decrease instances of cyber crime.
