The University of Windsor will mark Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2020 with its own all-digital campaign focused on themes that are particularly relevant to faculty, staff, and students working and learning online.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is an internationally recognized campaign held each October to inform the public of the importance of cybersecurity. This campaign is focused on helping all Canadians be more secure online by being informed and knowing the simple steps to take to protect themselves, their families, their workplaces, and their devices.

“We want to remind and educate the campus community about best practices around working from home, spotting phishing attempts, browsing safely, securing their mobile devices, and managing their workstations,” says Kevin Macnaughton, team leader security in Information Technology Services.

Each week throughout October, a key cybersecurity theme will be shared via DailyNews and UWindsor’s social media channels. More information is available at
