Cybersecurity Awareness Month at UVA Health
Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2023
October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month!
UVA Health has joined the annual campaign led by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cybersecurity Alliance (NCSA). The campaign emphasizes how the public and private sector can work together and to do our own individual part in building a secure online world.
Many cyber professionals are aware of the increasing number of risks and threats posed to the healthcare industry in our increasingly virtual world. At UVA Health, we want your help to improve our cyber posture and use the security concepts you are exposed to in the workplace to help others take a safe and aware approach to cybersecurity.
Throughout October you will be introduced to four weekly themes:
Always patch your software and applications when updates become available - don’t delay!
Create extra barriers against threat actors by enabling multi-factor authentication on your accounts at both work and home.
Take simple actions to craft and secure strong passwords and keep your digital life secure.
Learn how to identify and report phishing attempts to prevent ransomware and other malware attacks.
Each of us can get involved this October to help all of us at UVA Health be safer and more secure online. Please check out the security resources on this website and discuss these important cybersecurity topics with your team and peers.
