October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month and the Privacy Matters team invites you to participate in their interactive passport campaign to celebrate.
Each week of October will focus on a different cybersecurity-related topic. Staff and faculty members can stop by each passport ‘checkpoint’ to answer questions about the week’s topic and get their passport stamped. Locations will have a limited supply of passports and prizes. Be sure to get there early so you don’t miss out. The more stamps you get, the more chances you’ll have to win prizes.
The first checkpoint will take place Oct. 3, 2019, 10:00 – 10:30 a.m., at the entrance to the ARC Fitness Centre (6138 Student Union Blvd).
