Celebrating NCSAM 2019 at UD

This October is the 16th annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), an annual, month-long celebration of cybersecurity in recognition of the growing importance it plays throughout our lives.

Led jointly by the United States Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, NCSAM helps educate the public about safe computing and information practices. Throughout October, the government and more than 600 public and private organizations nationwide champion the cybersecurity cause.

Here at the University of Delaware, we celebrate NCSAM with weekly prizes, awareness training, and events like IT's Tech Open House.
