October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2014

For those not aware, October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month.

"NCSAM is designed to engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives with the goal of raising awareness about cybersecurity and increasing the resiliency of the nation in the event of a cyber incident. October 2014 marks the 11th annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC)."

Now, locally, Nova Southeastern University's Graduate School of Computer and Information Sciences is hosting a series of events that tie in with NSCAM.

Among their public events are:

* September 30- FBI Special Presentation on "Cyber Security Threats and Trends"
* October 22- DHS Special Presentation on Cybersecurity: A Shared Responsibility

In addition, they have had other events for selected groups, like high school students and college students.

What is happening locally for you??
