October is Cyber Security Awareness Month

Cyber Security ImageThis October, SHSU will be participating in the National Cyber Security Awareness Month. SHSU will be joining individuals and organizations across the country to promote cyber security. The goal of this is to educate and inform others on how much technology affects our daily routine as well as the ways to protect their digital identity. SHSU will be doing its part to promote cyber security with various methods throughout the month. Here are some of the ways we will be promoting cyber security:

Cyber Security Panel

We will have two panel discussion groups during the month. We will have several SHSU employees there to answer any questions you may have regarding cyber security.

  • October 9th
    • CHSS C070
    • 2:00 - 4:00 PM
  • October 17th
    • Mafridge Auditorium
    • 3:00 - 5:00 PM

Cyber Security Presentation

Think your online activities are private? Think again. Everything you do on the web has the potential of being tracked. With this in mind, Don Perry will be offering a short presentation on how to browse the web anonymously on October 25th.

  • October 25th
    • CHSS C070
    • 3:30 - 5:00 PM

Games in the Mall Area

During the first week of October, we will have a number of games available to play in the LSC Mall area. We will have games that range from cyber security trivia to virus minesweeper. We encourage everyone to come by and try their luck.

Social Media Contests

Throughout the month we will also have a number of social media contests. If you are not currently following us on Twitter or Facebook, we encourage you to do so. By following us, you ensure that you will receive up to the minute updates from IT@Sam.

Here are the contests we will have available:

  • No! Face - Take a picture of your best "I've been hacked" face and post it to our Facebook account!
  • Caption Contest - We will post a cyber-related photo on Facebook and you post a caption for it. The best caption will win!
  • Pinterest - Create a Pinterest board on our Service Desk page. Create the best board and win a prize!


Throughout the month we will be giving away prizes. We have everything from pens to iPhone cases. What is great about this is it is all FREE! Take part in the activities and you could win some cool stuff!
