Computer Security Day on Nov 30,2014

Published: Monday, 29 September 2014

Computer Security Day is an annual event that is observed worldwide. It was started in 1988 to help raise awareness of computer related security issues. The goal of Computer Security Day is to remind people to protect their computers and information. Officially, Computer Security Day is November 30th. However, some some organizations choose to have functions on the next business day or week if CSD falls on a weekend.

Computer Security Day is a great opportunity for information security professionals and their organizations to raise the level of awareness within their users. 

For 2014 the theme for CSD will be "A Good Defense " The poster has yet to be designed but will include an image and text portraying the idea that we must be proactive and active for security to work. Each individual is responsible and plays a part in protecting information assets and resources. These include:

  • Viruses
  • PC security
  • Firewalls
  • Using strong passwords
  • Social engineering
  • Physical security of information resources and assets

We look forward for this event and hope all of us will be involved with protecting our computers and information
