Every October, Cybersecurity Awareness Month raises awareness about the importance of cybersecurity across the nation. Over the last year, serious threats like email phishing and ransomware become even more dangerous, making it essential that we all do our part to protect people and data from cyber threats.
Complete Cybersecurity Awareness Training – Coming Soon
Soon all Missouri State employees will be assigned refreshed Cybersecurity Awareness Training. You can help keep yourself and the university community safe and secure by completing this training when it is assigned.
Other things you can do to stay safe and secure include:
- Report Phishing and Email Scams – If you suspect an email is deceptive, you can easily report it by clicking the “Report Message” button in your Outlook toolbar. If you are not using Outlook, or have a question about whether an email is legitimate, you can always forward it to InformationSecurity@missouristate.edu.
- Think Before You Click – Clicking on links in emails and even websites can be dangerous. Before you click, pause to think about it. It’s a good idea to hold your mouse over a link to see where it will take you.
- Review Information Security Policies – All members of the university community are responsible for complying with Missouri States information security policies. You can find these policies in the policy library.
