County College of Morris (CCM) in Randolph is serving as a leader in cyber security education in New Jersey. The only community college in the state recognized as a certifying institution by the National Security Agency’s Committee on National Security Standards, CCM in October will be hosting weekly events to increase awareness of cyber threats and how the public can take steps to be safer and more secure online.
The sessions are being held in recognition of President Obama’s designation of October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
The “Stop. Think. Connect.” campaign is a national public awareness effort to convey that cyber security is a shared responsibility and each person has a part in keeping the Internet safe. As part of that effort, the Department of Information Technology at CCM is hosting events to help educate students, faculty, staff and the public on cyber security issues. The events, unless otherwise noted, take place on CCM’s Randolph campus.
The remaining events for Oct. include Oct. 13: From the Breakroom to the Boardroom – Emeriti Hall, Room 209, 12:30 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Oct. 21: Tour of the New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell – bus leaves CCM at 9 a.m.
Oct. 27: Capture the Flag with CCM Cyber Centurions – Emeriti Hall, Room 217, 12:30 p.m.
