What is Cyber Security Awareness?

In our busy world, computers and the Internet have become critical resources that people call upon everyday in their work and studies. MSU’s Cyber Security Awareness aims to enlighten students, faculty, and staff to the dangers and challenges that are prevalent in cyberspace.

As prescribed by the University’s Information Security Policy and Program, Cyber Security Awareness Week will be held the week of October 19, coincident with National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Its goal is to educate the campus community about important issues in computer and information security.
