On Thursday, October 13, UNH Information Technology will host Agents J.R.

This session is open to USNH faculty, staff, and students. It will be held in the Memorial Union Building beginning at 1pm.

This event is the last in the series planned by UNH Information Security Services in recognition of Cyber Security Awareness Month. Registration is requested. UNH event attendees are eligible to register for a Grand Prize Drawing for an 11" MacBook Air.  The Grand Prize is co-sponsored by UNH ISS and Thales e-Security and will be presented by UNH CIO Stan Waddell and THALES UNH Representative, Patrick McLarney in November.

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, an annual occurrence targeted towards raising awareness in regards to the importance of cyber security. According to the Federal Trade Commission, these threats take on many shapes and forms, including data breaches, security incidents, privacy violations, and phishing/skimming attacks.

Here at UNH, sensitive data is handled by many faculty and staff on both a personal and professional level. As societal reliance on the Internet grows steadier by the day, the importance of educating those online to standard best security practices is critical.
