Fourteen years ago, the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance created National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) to promote resources to help everyone stay safe and secure online. UCSF is celebrating this year by holding outreach and educational events and providing outreach material. Hope to see you at one of the events!

UCSF IT and the Privacy Office will be setting up tables at the following locations to promote the various UCSF resources that help our community stay safe and secure online. We will be providing gifts, while supplies last. More detailed information is available at #cybersecurity2017

2017 NCSAM Toolkit for the UC Community

This toolkit is the result of the work of a systemwide workgroup representing 12 UC locations. It includes a variety of resources for National Cyber Security Awareness Month which are available to all UC campuses. The goal of this cross-campus collaboration, and this toolkit, is to save campuses time and effort by providing a range of options from which to pick and choose for National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Not everything will meet everyone’s needs, but the workgroup hopes that most campuses will find at least some resources useful.

All of the following resources are available to the entire University of California community.

| Posters and Videos | Blog articles | Guides for students | Tip of the day | Fact sheets | Ideas for outreach | Resources from Educause
