This month, the Office of Information Technology's (OIT's) Office of Information Security (OIS) is preparing for National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM). This annual campaign is used to increase awareness about cybersecurity worldwide. During the month participants are educated on potential threats and provided the tools and resources needed to stay safe while online.

UTSA's cyber security program has been ranked No. 1 in the nation by the Ponemon Institute. The program is available at three university colleges: College of Business (COB), College of Engineering (COE), and College of Sciences (COS). UTSA is committed to protecting data, systems, and information, as well as educating and informing the Roadrunner community about various methods of cyber protection that are generally quick, easy, and powerful.

OIT encourages all UTSA faculty, staff, and students to take part in protecting your personal devices and data. Throughout October, we will be sharing information on cybersecurity as well as weekly security tips on various topics. Information Security is everyone's responsibility, OIS will begin NCSAM by providing useful tips on things you can do to keep safe online.

To view the tools and resources for National Cyber Security Awareness Month please connect online with UTSA Office of Information Technology on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.
