Security Awareness Month

The first and most important layer of IT security is awareness. In addition to the security awareness and training portion of the UIC Information Security Program, the ACCC Information Security and Privacy Office promotes Security Education, Awareness and News through our twitter feed and we encourage you to .

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) and each year the ACCC Information Security and Privacy Office prepares an NCSAM Campaign to engage the campus community in security awareness and education.

During the month of October you can visit for in-depth information about our outreach themes.

Our outreach themes for this year are:

  • Week 1: Curiosity Killed the Cat - Phishing Attacks
  • Week 2: Copycat - Copyright Infringement
  • Week 3: The Cat's Out of the Bag - Social Media
  • Week 4: The Cat's Meow - Device Security

As always, you never have to wait for security education and awareness to come to you. The ACCC Information Security and Privacy Office is just an email away and can be reached at to provide you with the support you need.
