Cyber Security Awareness Month

Cyber Security Awareness Month

Every October countries around the world recognize Cyber Security Awareness Month. The goal is to raise awareness of the importance of Cyber Security as well as to encourage the practice of good cyber safety habits. In recognition of Cyber Security Awareness month, Mount Royal University offers several activities for faculty, staff and students to participate in. One of those activities is the Cyber Security Challenge where participants collect draw entry codes by accessing various cyber security resources. Check out the results from 2017.
