National Cyber Security Awareness
For the past 13 years, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Cyber Security Awareness Alliance, and other government, education, and industry leaders have designated October as “Cyber Security Awareness Month.” The TTU Office of the CIO participated in the inaugural campaign, and continues our campus and Lubbock Community efforts to raise awareness and promote online safety practices.
With the explosion of social networking applications and growing Internet activity, we are all responsible for protecting ourselves, our families, and our businesses online, as well as keeping our personal and business information secure.
We encourage you to visit our newly updated Cyber Security Awareness site for the community at www.cybersecurity.ttu.edu. On the website, you will also find a rich collection of cyber safety practices and information, such as avoiding identity theft, mobile device data protection, social networking tips, and other topics of interest to digital citizens. We have also added a blog to the cyber security website that will offer tips on timely topics throughout the year.
You can find additional information at these national resources:
Stop Think Connect
Stay Safe Online
Microsoft Safety & Security Center
National Initiative for Cybersecurity Education
Remember to think before you click and be vigilant about protecting your personal and business information.
