October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM)

During the month of October 2017, the Department of Homeland Security offers weekly cyber security themes to aid in user awareness regarding current cyber threats and corrective responses to such threats. The GRCC IT Security team is hosting relevant security information on the IT Security webpage. Be sure to check it out weekly and remember, with all the current security breaches going on across the country, “don’t get scared…. get secured.”

DHS NCSAM Week Four Theme: The Internet Wants YOU: Consider a Career in Cybersecurity

According to a study by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education, by 2022, there will be a shortage of 1.8 million information security workers. It is critical that today’s students graduate ready to enter the workforce to fill the vast number of available cybersecurity positions. Week 4 will encourage students and other job seekers to explore cybersecurity careers. Key influencers – like parents, teachers, guidance counselors and state and local officials – will learn more about this growing field and how to engage youth in pursuing cybersecurity careers.
