National Cyber Security Awareness Month Just Around the Corner!

PhishingMore and more cybercrimes occur every day over the world. Unfortunately, many people are still unaware of the dangers that lurk just around the mouse click. It is for this reason that, over the past few years, Homeland Security has made it a priority to bring cyber awareness to the masses. With the help of various organizations they are able to reach a vast number of individuals. That is why SHSU will participate in National Cyber Security Awareness Month with other organizations across the country.

Here is an example of some of the threats out there. Below is an example of a phishing e-mail that targets users and attempts to trick people to revealing information (i.e. passwords and usernames). Don't fall victim to these scams. Study the photo below and look for the key indicators of phishing e-mails.

What You Can Expect This Year

This October in the mall area, you will see IT@Sam employees hosting games and providing giveaways to provide information and insight on cyber security awareness. Also, we remind all program owners to review computer application access and remove access from any individuals that no longer need that access.


We will also have a few cyber-related contests for our social media followers. If you don’t already follow us on Facebook or Twitter, please follow us so you can be up to date on all the fun events we will be having.

For more information, please contact Chas Stephens or Marilyn Cummings.
