CUNY is once again participating in the National Cyber Security Awareness Month program run by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) to create awareness about cyber security. Each week in October, we will send you an email with information and tips from leading cybersecurity organizations on protecting you, your family, and your coworkers online. Our goal is to help you make the most of today’s technology, safely and securely.

Our weekly email themes are as follows:

Week 1 – Make Your Home a Haven for Online Safety

Week 2 – Educating for a Rewarding Career in Cybersecurity

Week 3 – Your Part in Ensuring Online Safety at Work

Week 4 – Help Safeguard the Nation’s Critical Infrastructure

Our emails and supporting information also will be available on the National Cyber Security Awareness Month page on the CUNY Website. Also, for more information and regular updates, you may want to subscribe to OUCH! the world’s leading free security awareness newsletter.

As part of security awareness, please continue to be cognizant of phishing scams, which recently impacted some of our user community email accounts. In this regard, being aware of emails to which you respond and provide information is critical. We highly recommend reviewing the security literature that IT Services will be providing throughout the month of October as well as reviewing the online security awareness course.

Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.
