HONOLULU — During the month of October, in support of National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), the UH Information Security Team will hold informational workshops and promote online articles to highlight the importance of practicing secure computing habits in cyberspace. Through a series of articles, in combination with informational workshops, the UH Information Security Team will provide tips and techniques to help you safeguard your personal information and deter identity theft.

This year is the 10th anniversary of NCSAM sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security (dhs.gov) in cooperation with the National Cyber Security Alliance (staysafeonline.org) and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (msisac.cisecurity.org) to raise awareness and educate the community about the importance of cyber security.

In alignment with the NCSAM weekly themes, the Information Security Team will focus on four areas to increase cyber security awareness:

  1. Awareness: Our Shared Responsibility
  2. Being Mobile: Online Safety Anytime Anywhere
  3. Education: pA5$wOrd! … If It Isn’t Strong It’s Wrong!
  4. Cyber Crime: Sec_rity Is Not Complete Without U

The Information Security Team will conduct two workshops which will be broadcast on the UH Hawaii Interactive Video Service (HITS):

October 2, Privacy and Security: Protecting personally identifiable information and securing your mobile device. (1:30 – 3:30pm)

October 17, Current Cyber Threats & Preventing Cyber Crime. (1:00 – 3:00pm)
