|2016 WSU #CyberAware Day Summit
and National Cyber Security Awareness Month
I am excited to share an event Information Technology Services (ITS) will be hosting on the Pullman campus October 12th in support of October being the National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
ITS is hosting its first ever WSU #CyberAware Day Summit. This event will take place at the Compton Union Building’s Jr. Ballroom beginning at 8:50 am, and ending at roughly 4:00 pm, following our last panel Q&A session.
During the morning, FireEye and Proofpoint, both critical partners with WSU’s technology security efforts, will present information regarding today’s technology threat landscape and will be available for follow up questions after each of their sessions. During a break in presentations from 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm, you can join us at demonstration tables to talk with ITS security team members. Our afternoon sessions will begin with a guest FBI speaker at 2:00 pm, and wrap up with our ITS security panel hosting a Q&A discussion.
There is no pre-registration for the summit, all are welcome to attend as your schedule allows throughout the day. For a full agenda with times, visit our security.wsu.edu website homepage. Video streaming will be available in the following locations outside of Pullman:

Cyber security education is a national focus for October and along with joining our summit, we encourage you to explore resources both at our security.wsu.edu site as well as at staysafeonline.org. The more educated you are, the better online experience you will have. As always, our ITS security team is diligently working to support your technology security and will continue to do so.
