National Cyber Security Awareness Month Webinars
There will be a number of educational webinars made available throughout the month of October on information security.
With all the technology tools and resources made available to us the biggest and most challenging resource is us, people. Everyone needs to understand and accept responsibility in keeping ourselves, our campus and our families safe from cyber thieves. It is "Our Shared Responsibility" and this month we will look into how to achieve that responsibility.
Sans webinars require registration, but registration is free. Instructions to access the SANS Information Security Webcasts.
