Cybersecurity Awareness Month roundup

IT Solutions hosted a month full of cybersecurity awareness activities during October. Pioneers learned more about cybersecurity, spread campaign awareness, and participated in this year’s events:

  •  Information Security successfully launched TWU’s first “What Does Cybersecurity Mean to You in Six Words or Less” campaign. We received unique and personal responses from students, faculty and staff. See what your colleagues and peers shared by checking out the Cybersecurity in Six Words Wall!
  • A total of 1,500 pounds of electronic waste were responsibly recycled from TWU departments and academic components during the TWU Asset E-Waste Event. This is 275 pounds more than the last e-waste event and the most e-waste collected in a single event since the start of this program. Hard drives containing confidential and sensitive data were physically destroyed and office equipment such as phones, printers and scanners were recycled and saved from landfills.
  • The third annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month Trivia registration filled in record time, and all participants passed the quiz. Congratulations to the winners!

As we say “goodbye” to this year’s festivities, all faculty, staff and students are encouraged to reflect on the messages from this year’s campaign and embrace healthy online habits throughout the year. What you do online has the potential to affect everyone – at home, at work and around the world. Cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility.

Practice good habits today to protect yourself and your communities. These websites offer up-to-date information so that everyone may continue to learn more about cybersecurity:
