What is Cyber Security Awareness?

In our busy world, computers and the Internet have become a critical resource that people call upon everyday to do their work and studies. Cyber Security Awareness enables everyone to be conscious of the dangers and challenges that are prevalent in cyberspace.

As part of mission of the Information Security Program at MSU , Cyber Security Awareness Week will be held in October, (National Cyber Security Awareness Month) to educate the campus community about important issues in computer security.
