October 2019 is National Cyber Security Awareness Month

September 30, 2019

October has been designated as National Cyber Security Awareness Month by the National Cyber Security Alliance. Each year, the campaign encourages safe online behavior by educating users on the importance of cyber security and how to be cyber safe.

Texas Children’s activities

We are excited to kick off Security Awareness Month. Your Information Security team at Texas Children’s will share valuable information and resources throughout the month to educate, enable and empower employees to be more cyber aware and secure.
