Cybersecurity Awareness month

Headlines about public and private organizations worldwide falling victim to ransomware or data breaches have become all too common. We all must remain vigilant at home and at the office.

This year, WaTech’s state Office of Cybersecurity (OCS) is participating in National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM) with an expanded daily quiz (see below) that serves as a fast and fun way to test your cybersecurity knowledge.

Beginning Thursday, Oct. 1, please make a daily visit to this page and respond to the security questions of the day. You can enter your name into a weekly drawing for prizes.

In addition, OCS is hosting several virtual presentations in October as part of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Please check out our calendar of events and watch out for video links on the day of the presentation.

Unfortunately, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, OCS had to cancel its popular cyber escape room. 

The U.S. Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency has more information about NCSAM and how to protect yourself online: www.cisa.gov/national-cyber-security-awareness-month
