National Cyber Security Awareness Month - October, 2012
National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) and takes place every October in an effort to raise awareness about information security issues.
2012 NCSAM Events at Penn
In conjunction with Penn's Privacy Office and several of the computing support operations in the various schools and centers across campus, the Office of Information Security will be hosting and coordinating a number of events to celebrate National Cyber Security Awareness Month:
