National Cyber Security Awareness Month

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. With the assistance of partners, the Marquette University Center for Cyber Security Awareness and Cyber Defense is hosting a Colloquium to share knowledge about effective measures to increase cyber security awareness. Our program will span efforts in commercial organizations and K12 institutions.


Learn how to shore up your defenses – It’s Everyone’s Job

The theme for the third week of National Cyber Security Month is “It’s everyone’s job to ensure online safety at work.” All workers need to understand threats and defenses. But not all workers need the same knowledge, skills and abilities. This is not just about general guidelines on passwords and software updates. Engineers need to design secure systems, financial workers need to secure sensitive information, and IT managers need to a service desk that can detect and respond to cyber-attacks. What can we do to bolster the organization’s awareness and how do we know if it is working?


This half-day program will have three components:

  1. Reports from the Field
  2. Status of Cyber Security Awareness in K12
  3. An industry Panel on Measures and Measurements
