County College of Morris (CCM) is serving as a leader in cyber security education in New Jersey. The only community college in the state recognized as a certifying institution by the National Security Agency’s Committee on National Security Standards, CCM this month is hosting weekly events to increase awareness of cyber threats and how the public can take steps to be safer and more secure online.
The sessions are being held in recognition of President Obama’s designation of October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month. The national “Stop. Think. Connect.” campaign is a public awareness effort to convey that cyber security is a shared responsibility and each person has a part in keeping the Internet safe.
As part of that effort, the Department of Information Technology at CCM is hosting events to help educate students, faculty, staff and the public on cyber security issues. All sessions take place on CCM’s Randolph campus, 214 Center Grove Road.
