October is Cyber Security Awareness Month

From the IT Group:

October is Cyber Security Awareness month. This October, the IT Group is initiating a Cyber Security Awareness Training that will last for several months. The content of the training, titled “Securing the Human,” was developed by SANS Institute.

Cyber security begins with you! Managing cyber security is a shared responsibility. The IT Group can do part of it, but you need to do your part too. This new training program is a tool that will help you learn how to protect your information and be in charge of your own cyber security. This training delivers a series of short videos addressing cyber security topics. Newsletters and posters will also accompany the videos and will be released monthly starting in October and ending in May 2013.

You will receive e-mail notices throughout the year from the IT Group HelpDesk and Please rest assured that these are legitimate e-mails from the IT Group HelpDesk and KSC IT Security; however, if you are at all suspicious or unsure, do not hesitate to contact the IT Group HelpDesk at 358-2532 to inquire.

Within the next day or two, an e-mail will be sent to you welcoming you to the training program. It will identify the website to visit to view the videos and will provide your login and password to your account. The site is very easy to navigate.

Our hope is that you will take the time to look at the videos and newsletters. The videos are between 3-5 minutes and contain valuable information on cyber security.

For complete information regarding this training, visit the IT Group Cyber Security website.

For questions about this or any other technology issue, please contact the HelpDesk at 358-2532, e-mail at, or stop by our office on the 2nd floor of Elliot Hall.
