Attendees were entered to win a Macbook Air (sponsored by the security software company, Sophos) and other prizes.
 
Grand prize winner Eileen Cooley attended the antiterrorism seminar lead by Patrick Woody of the National Counterterrorism Center. Cooley noted she highly enjoyed the session. “I could’ve stayed all afternoon listening to those guys. It was very good,” she said of the event. 
 
Sophos representative Ted Anglace was pleased with the events and excited about the UNH IT partnership. “Cyber Security starts early,” he said, noting the importance of reaching both staff and students as they enter the workforce. UNH IT encourages UNH students to use Sophos on their personal Mac computers.

Brian Dennis Gaon, UNH Information Security Officer, was equally satisfied with the month-long event. “It went great! Every month is Cyber Security Month for us.”
