October has been designated National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA), a consortium consisting of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and partners from academia and industry.
Office of Information Technology (OIT) is offering a program of presentations from top industry companies covering different aspects of cyber security. The events, which will take place during the week of October 18, will be broadcast to all FAU campuses. Click here for more details on the schedule of events.
Students also have the opportunity to win great prizes after completing an online quiz, which is available at the event Web site. The Web site contains information about how students can participate in a video competition, sponsored by EDUCAUSE, where they could win up to $1,000.
