2022 Cybersecurity Awareness Month

2022 NCSAM See Yourself October is celebrated as Cybersecurity Awareness Month. It is a collaborative effort between government and industry to raise cybersecurity awareness nationwide in order to ensure that all Americans have the knowledge and resources they need to be safe and secure online.

This year’s theme, “See Yourself in Cyber,” emphasizes that cybersecurity is a shared responsibility, stresses personal accountability, and the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity.

No one is immune to threats from cyber-villains, but, with proper precautions and a bit of advanced effort, we can all protect ourselves from online dangers.

Get Involved!

As a National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA) champion, SDSU is launching a month-long program to create awareness about cybersecurity. The weekly themes for this year includes the following:

Join the SDSU IT Security Office (ITSO) on a wide variety of learning opportunities throughout October to learn about cyber hygiene and cybersecurity issues. We encourage you to explore our website, “SDSU 2022 Cybersecurity Awareness Month,” where there will be weekly articles, tips, and activities to promote cybersecurity at SDSU.
