UNH IT Hosts National Cyber Security Awareness Month Events

September 22, 2017

by UNH IT Staff

Cyber Security is everyone's responsibility.

Cybercrime and identity theft are epidemics requiring more than just mindfulness and diligence. The fight against both necessitates arming ourselves with as much knowledge and understanding of how malicious attacks are carried out, and how we, as a community, can work individually and together to prevent outbreaks from causing personal and institutional harm.

UNH Information Security Services (ISS) is committed to keeping the personal data of students, faculty, and staff safe from harm by offering strategies to help prevent malicious attacks. In recognition of October’s National Cyber Security Awareness Month, ISS is hosting a series of informative events targeted towards educating the University community on the latest cyber threats, and offering methods on how to keep our data out of the hands of criminals.

ISS is incentivizing attendance at these events by awarding door prizes of $50 UNH Computer Store gift cards at each session. Attendees will also be entered to win larger prizes of an iPad, Beats Wireless Headphones, and a Playstation 4. The more events you attend, the greater your chances of winning. All of the following events are free and open to the public,  For more information and to register, go to http://unh.edu/it/ncsam.
