Let’s face it: Even the best of us can accidentally fall for phishing campaigns and other cyberattacks. They’re not always obvious!
That’s why it’s important to make sure you understand current tactics that cybercriminals use to steal your data and infect your devices.
To help you own, secure and protect your digital profile, the U’s Information Security Office (ISO) offers various cybersecurity courses for U students and employees. Learn more about the training on our National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) website.
While you’re there, check out the other free resources available from ISO, University Information Technology (UIT) and national organizations to help improve your cybersecurity at home, on the go and on campus.
This year’s NCSAM topics include:
- Your digital profile: Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.
- Cybercrime victims lose millions each year. Do you know how to protect your digital profile and devices?
- The strongest line of defense against cyberthreats
- Building a culture around cybersecurity at the University of Utah
As part of this year’s NCSAM campaign, ISO’s Governance, Compliance & Risk team is giving away free block U decals. Pick one up at the Office of Orientation and Transition in the Union, Knowledge Commons in Marriott Library or the front desk of 102 Tower.
