Month dedicated to promoting awareness of cybersecurity

In recognition of Cybersecurity Awareness month, Information Technology Services will share best practices, tips, and information with the campus community throughout October. The campaign will serve to remind readers that cybersecurity is a team effort and shared responsibility.

“We are taking the opportunity to remind our Lancer community about best practices. It is important for faculty, staff, and students to know how to secure their devices, spot phishing attempts, and more,” says Marcin Pulcer, interim executive director of IT Services.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is an effort by governments and organizations across Canada, the U.S.A., and the world, to highlight measures that individuals and businesses can use to protect themselves against cybercrimes. IT Services will share key cybersecurity themes weekly via DailyNews and on UWindsor’s social media channels.
