Secure Northwestern

Illustration of the phrase "October is cybersecurity month"

Northwestern IT and security teams across the University are partnering to promote best practices and behaviors that help students, faculty, and staff prepare to connect, protect, and secure Northwestern against cybercriminals' attempts to harvest sensitive information.

Throughout the year-long effort, learn how to protect yourself better when it comes to securing mobile devices, generating stronger passwords, avoiding phishing scams, and more with help from Northwestern IT and a host of security resources that are always just a click away. Watch for details in the Northwestern IT newsletter, follow along on Twitter and Facebook, and read the Information Security Office's blog for updates on a range of topics to ensure we continue to learn, teach, and work in a safe online environment.

Since 2003, October has been recognized as National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, an effort led by a collaboration between the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance to ensure that every individual stays safe and secure online.
