Launching Cyber Security Awareness

BCIT's first-ever pan-institutional Cyber Security Awareness Program is launching soon! The program will focus on raising awareness, educating, and inspiring stakeholders to think differently about the security of data and privacy. The launch is scheduled for October 1st, 8:30 am at Town Square C. As part of the launch, BCIT ITS team, Privacy team, academic schools, and student association will come together to present four themed events throughout October. To view a complete list of Cyber Security Awareness events please see below.

BCIT manages substantial amounts of intellectual property, confidential information, and personal information about our community, including students, faculty, staff, alumni, and donors. End-user cyber awareness and training opportunities highlight the importance of information security, risk, and privacy implications to avoid incidents such as phishing, data breach or compromise, malicious exploitation, or accidental data disclosure. To learn more about these topics, please visit the cyber awareness website.

The goal is to foster a culture of cyber awareness within the community; be aware of the risks we all carry when interacting and working with information technology, how to defend against malicious threats, and how to react to information security events or incidents, both at work and at home.
