Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2018

October 01, 2018

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a joint effort by government and business leaders from across Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand to put into effect better practices and safeguards to combat cybercrime. At UBC, we are acutely aware of the importance for all faculty, staff and students to take time every day to safeguard our collective privacy.
