UCLA offers cyber security events for everyone on campus

Students, faculty and staff will all have opportunities to learn how to be more cybersecure.

From our desks and homes to on the go, we work, learn and play online. Even when we are not directly connected to the internet, our critical infrastructure — the vast, worldwide connection of computers, data and websites supporting our everyday lives through financial transactions, transportation systems, healthcare records, emergency response systems, personal communications and more — impacts everyone.

So as part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month at UCLA, faculty, staff and students can attend events at which they can learn how to better protect themselves against the ever-increasing threats computer uses face to their networks, devices and data.

Created as a collaborative effort between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and its public and private partners, including the National Cyber Security Alliance, the goal of National Cyber Security Awareness Month is to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity.
