NSCAM Events Across Campus
Come out and meet the Office of Information Security Services (OISS) as we promote NSCAM.
- Cyber Security Poster Contest. Put your creative skills to work and create a cyber security poster. Use an idea that you feel is important for Ball State students to know about. Poster size should be U.S. letter paper size with resolution of 300 pixels. Send your poster to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 25th to be considered. Prizes for first, second and third place. Winners to be announced Tuesday, October 29th at 12:30pm in the dining area of the Woodworth Complex. The winning poster will be featured on our web site.
- LATENIGHT. Students join us at LATENIGHT October 26th for Phishing during Austin Powers week. Yeah Baby! It's just like your favorite childhood carnival booth, except don't be scammed into giving the wrong answer. Pull a cyber security related question from the Phish Bowl, answer it and go Phishing with your Phishing Pole. If you answer the question right you'll get a prize. Answer the question wrong and you've been scammed. Sorry, no prize.
- Awareness Day. On October 29th at 11:00am come by and speak to someone about your online safety questions and concerns at the Woodworth Complex. There will be brochures, promotional items and a chance to win Ball State apparel by completing an online safety survey. See who wins the student cyber security poster contest at 12:30pm in the dining area.
- Stop by the IT Concierge in the library throughout the month to pick up a cyber security bookmark and information on identity theft, phishing or mobile security. While you are there stay and watch the videos on protecting your password, phishing and other important cyber security issues.
We'd like everyone to complete the online safety survey and have a chance to win prizes regardless if you are able to stop by for Awareness Day at Woodworth. Complete the survey by November 1, 2013, and return it to the Office of Information Security Services located in Lafollette N16, to the attention of Deb Howell to have your responses included in our survey.
If you are unable to stop by visit the security awareness web site to learn more about staying safe online. The site helps educate users on various cyber security issues, but more specifically, addresses issues we see here on campus and new threats on the internet. There is also information on security tips, webinars, and videos. To learn more join us at http://www.bsu.edu/secureit.
Remember to join us on Facebook and Twitter at BSUOISS for cyber security related information.
