Greetings everyone!

National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) 2013 is wrapping up today. Here are 5 things we'd like to share about 
what's been happening this month and what's next.

1) Thank you and congratulations to you, the higher education community, for a very successful celebration of the 10th 
anniversary of NCSAM! We've enjoyed learning about the fun, creative activities and events taking place on your campus.

2) Over 190 institutions (our highest number in 10 years!) shared their plans with us during the month of October. See 
what events took place by visiting our NCSAM Resource Kit: http://tinyurl.com/NCSAMresourcekit

3) We had 100 higher ed institutions sign up as NCSAM Champions (twice as many as 2012). For a complete list, 

4) We hope that campuses will continue to educate and train students, staff, and faculty on the importance of security 
awareness throughout the year – not just in October. Be sure to check out the Cybersecurity Awareness Resource Library 
for new materials or inspiration: http://tinyurl.com/NCSAMresourcekit

5) Please consider celebrating Data Privacy Month<http://www.educause.edu/dpm> on your campus in 2014. Data Privacy 
Day<http://www.staysafeonline.org/dpd> is January 28, 2014. We will continue to celebrate a month of Data Privacy in 
the higher ed community January 28-February 28. EDUCAUSE will kick off DPM with a webinar on January 30, 2014. Please 
save the date!

Finally, would like to thank the National Cyber Security Alliance<http://www.staysafeonline.org/ncsam> and the 
Department of Homeland Security<http://www.dhs.gov/stopthinkconnect> for making it easier for campuses to promote NCSAM 
throughout the month of October!

Co-Chairs, Higher Education Information Security Council (HEISC) NCSAM Task Force

p.s.  It's never too early to start planning for NCSAM next year! :-)
