Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

Now in its 20th year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is a global effort to help everyone stay safe and protected when using technology, whenever and however you connect. St. Cloud State University is proud to be a champion of this online safety and education initiative this October and we encourage every employee to take control of their online lives. Throughout the month of October, we will be promoting key behaviors for cyber safety. There are many ways to stay safe and secure online, and just practicing these cybersecurity basics can make a huge difference.

  1. Create strong passwords and use a password manager
  2. Turn on multifactor authentication
  3. Recognize and report phishing
  4. Update your software

Cybersecurity Awareness Month is co-led by the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Agency (CISA).
