Department of Information Technology

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month  

Cybersecurity The internet can be a dark and spooky place. Malware, identity theft, phishing and other tricks can steal your time, money, and even your identity. The Department of Information Technology is here to bring you technology treats throughout the month of October, Cybersecurity Awareness Month. 

The United States Department of Homeland Security has declared October as Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The Department of Information Technology (DoIT) at Seton Hall University will provide valuable information that will help you understand the need for computer security, your role in keeping your devices and applications secure, and tips and information about protecting your identity and the university’s data.

Each week, another aspect of cyber security will be highlighted, on the web, on campus and in direct e-mail communications from the Department of Information Technology (DoIT). A short phishing quiz will also be emailed as part of the weekly cybersecurity newsletter. Users that successfully pass the quiz will be eligible to win an Apple Watch or Apple AirPods.

  • Week 1: Passwords
  • Week 2: Malware
  • Week 3: Cyberbullying
  • Week 4: Identity Theft
  • Week 5: Phishing
