Our Shared Responsibility
National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), conducted every October since 2004, is a national public awareness campaign to encourage everyone to protect their computers and our nation’s critical cyber infrastructure.
UCO's Office of Information Technology is hosting multiple events throughout the month to shed a brighter light on what we can all do to implement stronger security practices and raise community awareness. Together we will be a digital society safer and more resistant from attacks.
We lead Internet-connected, digital lives. 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.
Cybersecurity is the mechanism that maximizes our ability to grow commerce, communications, community and content in a connected world. The Internet is a shared resource and securing it is Our Shared Responsibility.
