October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is coming soon and we’re making plans for reaching out to as many members of the UW community as possible. The National Cybersecurity Alliance has identified four behaviors to focus on this year, rather than their usual weekly themes. Read more here.

Watch this space for additional announcements, events, and links to related posts.

Events listed on this page are for members of the UW community.

Check out our post about cybersecurity awareness materials for things you can do to help your class or department stay cyber smart all year long.
