The University of Arizona is once again participating in National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) as a NCSAM Champion. The UA Information Security team takes its responsibility to the UA research and education mission seriously, particularly when it comes to identifying and mitigating risks to UA information assets.
While security threats are ubiquitous and ever-changing, you, as UA faculty and staff, have the power and responsibility to protect assets entrusted to you. Our team is here to make it easier for you to do so.
This month’s newsletter highlights the many resources provided by our team and on our website and social media pages, as well as tools and resources provided by other NCSAM champions.

SECURITY NEWS RESOURCES
We recommend visiting our website often, as we are always updating our content in response to the latest threats and security trends. Here are a few items you may want to bookmark.
- Spotlight: News items on the latest threats, tips for keeping your information secure, or a new security awareness campaign or initiative.
- Phishing Alerts: This is one of the most active spots on our website. When we receive a phishing report from campus, we post the report here. You can view all phishing alerts, or subscribe to the alert feed, and have all alerts delivered to your mailbox.

SECURITY AWARENESS CAMPAIGN 2014-2015
UA Information Security is launching a new student security awareness campaign this month. You should be seeing flyers, table toppers, brochures and handouts urging members of our community to THINK! Before they click, post, reply, share, etc.
Interested in having materials to provide to your students? Would you like to have an information security expert speak to your class about online security, phishing, etc.? Please contact us at email@example.com.
Even though the materials are geared toward students, faculty and staff can benefit from the campaign information as well. Check out the campaign webpage.
Thanks to The Office of the CIO and the IT Student Advisory Board (ITSAB) for their support of this important campaign.
