In 2021, in celebration of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the Information Security Team at Ohio University painted the famous "Graffiti Wall" on campus!
Cybersecurity Awareness Month
Every year since 2003, October has been recognized as Cybersecurity Awareness Month. This effort was brought to life through a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cybersecurity Alliance. Cybersecurity Awareness Month features a variety of topics each week to help inform and educate individuals on how to best protect themselves online. This initiative continues to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity across our nation. Here at OHIO, we are dedicated to ensuring the University community has all the resources necessary to be safe and more secure online.
We also encourage all faculty and staff to complete the Online IT Security training, if they have not done so already. University departments that have the highest rate of completion at the end of October will be recognized as Cybersecurity Champions and the winning department will receive a cookie party courtesy of the Information Security Office.
This year, we will focus on four key behaviors which allow users to feel empowered to take responsibility for personal data safety online.
