UCSF Plans Events for National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Phishing attempts, ransomware, and malware – these cyber threats are real, but so are the tools and techniques to help prevent them.

In order to help UC San Francisco faculty, staff, students and trainees protect their and UCSF’s digital information, the University is celebrating National Cyber Security Awareness Month with a series of events that run through October.

The events kick off with a talk by FBI Special Agent Kevin Phelan, who runs the agency’s Palo Alto, Calif., office. His team conducts investigations related to intellectual property matters, theft of trade secrets and economic espionage.

In addition to talks about cybersecurity, the UCSF Information Technology department will be setting up tables at numerous UCSF campus and medical center locations to provide resources for the community to stay safe and secure online.

UCSF’s events are a part of the University of California’s systemwide National Cyber Security Awareness Month awareness campaign.
