CSUSB Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM)

National Cybersecurity Awareness Month #BeCyberSmart

CSUSB Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM)

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM).  A collaborative effort between government and industry emphasizing the role each of us plays in online safety.  NCSAM seeks to empower every American in taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity at home and in the workplace while increasing the resilience of the Nation against cyber threats.

CSUSB’s CSAM is a month of activities to raise cyber security awareness of the campus community.  These include: presentations, weekly security tips, fun videos and games.  Participants can be entered into the weekly Cyber-Smart Champion Raffle by taking phishing quizzes, testing the strength of their passwords, and seeing how savvy they are when it comes to cyber safe practices.  Weekly emails will be sent with  instructions on how to get entered into the drawing.  Each week's collection of names will be added to the following week's pool making it possible for someone to win more than once!

Week 4 - The Future of Connected Devices

Week 4 - The Future of Connected Devices

The final week of Cybersecurity Awareness Month will look at the future of connected devices. This week will look at how technological innovations, such as 5G, might impact consumers’ and business’ online experiences (e.g. faster speeds and data transmission, larger attack surface for hackers), as well as how people/infrastructure can adapt to the continuous evolution of the connected devices moving forward. No matter what the future holds, however, every user needs to be empowered to do their part.


Cyber Security Champion Raffle Activities [Oct. 26th - Oct. 30th]:


DUO Multifactor Authentication Self-Enrollment 

All week 

Duo is a two-step authentication solution that requires end users to verify the validity of their authentication credentials by providing additional information from a physical device in their possession. This prevents anyone who has only the Coyote ID and password from gaining access to a resource. The physical device could be your phone, cell phone, tablet, or a hardware token that you can retrieve from the Technology Support Center.

To be entered into the Cyber Security Champion Raffle, self-enroll in Duo by visiting and send us a screenshot of your enrollment to by Friday, October 30th. You can read more about DUO and view some informational videos on our website, here. Please contact the Technology Support Center at (909) 537-7677 for additional assistance on self-enrollment.

If you are already enrolled in DUO, you still have a chance to be entered into the Cyber Security Champion Raffle!
