Cyber smart actions make our world safer, more secure
The line between our online and offline lives is indistinguishable — now more than ever. While this network of connections creates opportunities for individuals and organizations across the globe, it also comes with unique challenges.
This October, for Cybersecurity Awareness Month (CSAM), UIT's Information Security Office (ISO) has highlighted the ways in which internet-connected devices have impacted our lives — good and bad — and provided the information and resources to empower users to protect their part of cyberspace.
If everyone does their part — implementing stronger security practices, raising community awareness, educating vulnerable audiences, or training employees — our interconnected world will be safer and more resilient.
If you haven’t already, please consider taking a few moments to visit the ISO’s CSAM website to check up on your cyber hygiene or share it with others. Topics include:
