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 Federal, State and local government, academia and industry. The NCSAM program here at FAU will focus on educating our Students, Faculty and Staff about how to secure their parts of Cyberspace, Their Desktop Computers, Mobile Devices, laptops and tablets computers.

As part of the nationwide NCSAM effort, The Office of Information Technology (OIT) is sponsoring cyber security events at FAU throughout October, including a series of informative presentations by industry experts. The Presentations will be video-conferenced and held at our Boca Raton campuses (see individual events below for originating rooms), and shown in Davie (LA139), Jupiter (SR275), Fort Lauderdale (HE608), and HBOI (HB105).
