Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October 17, 2018 3:09 PM

To The UMBC Community,

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, but in reality, we all need to be vigilant 24/7, 365 days a year. As such, I encourage you to watch this brief (under 2 min) video public service announcement.

Now, I want to challenge you: how careful are you about phishing emails? Do you know what phishing is? If in doubt, check out our FAQs about this and other IT security issues. Use the rest of this month to educate yourself.

If you have questions or want to learn more, visit the DoIT security website. You can even forward suspicious emails or IT security concerns to
