National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) is a national public awareness campaign to encourage everyone to protect their computers and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure. Spearheaded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance, a collaborative effort is underway to ensure that everyone has the resources they need to stay safe online. The EDUCAUSE/Internet2 Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) promotes and participates in the annual campaign each October, joining forces with a range of organizations from the public and private sector to expand cybersecurity awareness on campuses across the country. HEISC, co-chaired by Peter Murray, UMB’s Chief Information Officer and Vice President for Information Technology, offers a range of programs and resources for colleges and universities.
