Stony Brook University has been named a champion for National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) for the third year in a row. NCSAM is a public awareness campaign that promotes protecting our nation’s cyber infrastructure. Governments, businesses, and individuals are encouraged to take part in this awareness campaign to help spread the word on how to protect against cyber security threats.

Interim Chief Information Security Officer Matthew Nappi and Vice President of Information Technology and Chief Information Officer Melissa Woo, have spearheaded Stony Brook’s commitment to being NCSAM Champions. Throughout the month of October, the Division of Information Technology (DoIT) will be providing helpful tips for students, faculty, and staff to help keep our campus safe and #CyberAware.

We will be sending out weekly newsletters with cyber security protection information and  upcoming on campus cyber security events. Talk to us on Twitter and Facebook about cyber security using @sbudoit and #CyberAware or #NCSAM.

Later this month, west campus faculty and staff will be invited to participate in our new Safe Computing program. As part of an ongoing cyber security training and awareness initiative we are looking to formally educate the campus community regarding cyber security. Stay tuned for more information coming mid-October.

Everyone at Stony Brook University is responsible for cyber security. Increasing awareness is key to helping our community understand this responsibility and will better able community members to feel empowered to protect themselves against threats.

Join us this month as we raise awareness about cyber security.
