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 Barack Obama’s designation of October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month.
The “Stop. Think. Connect.” campaign is a national 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.
