Welcome to the third week of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. For this week we focus on cyber criminals. Specifically, how they attack people and what you can do to stop them.

Please help protect yourself against cyber criminals by:

  • Reading a security awareness newsletter on ransomware. This has become a very common and highly successful attack technique used by cyber criminals around the world.
  • Reviewing a poster on how you can identify and stop phishing attacks, one of the most common attack methods used by cyber criminals today.
  • Reviewing the CUNY Issued Security Advisory on ransomware.

Welcome to the second week of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. For this week we are focusing on how to secure yourself at home to make it safer for you and those you live with. Making sure your home environment is secure also helps secure your work environment.

Please help make your home environment more secure by:

  • Reading a security awareness newsletter on protecting your home network.
  • Reviewing a poster on protecting your home.
  • Viewing a video (12 minutes) on the top three risks to kids online today and what you can do about those risks.
  • Sharing these materials with others, including your family, friends and neighbors.

Welcome to the first week of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. For this week we are focusing on how to secure yourself at work to make it safer for you and your colleagues.

Please help make your work environment more secure by:

  • Reviewing a poster explaining why you are a target, identifying all the different ways cyber criminals can make money from hacking you.
  • Viewing a short security awareness video (4:06 minutes) on targeted attacks

You may also want to visit and bookmark a site where you can learn more about protecting yourself online with daily security awareness tips.

CUNY is participating in the National Cyber Security Awareness Month program run by the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) to create awareness about cybersecurity. Each week in October, we will provide information and tips on protecting yourself at work and at home. Our goal is to help you make the most of today’s technology…safely and securely.

Our weekly themes are as follows:

Week 1 – Cybersecurity in the workplace
Week 2 – Cybersecurity in the home
Week 3 – Cybercrime
Week 4 – Securing mobile devices

Remember that CUNY also provides an online security awareness course (please provide the registration information requested) that is catered to CUNY students, faculty and staff and a growing security resources list on the CUNY Information Security pages. You may also want to subscribe to OUCH! — the world’s leading, free security awareness newsletter designed for technology users.

HURRICANE HARVEY
Harvey was a Category 4 hurricane when it struck Texas and the Gulf of Mexico on August 25-30.  Wind gusts from Harvey reached 100mph.  Harvey distinguished itself by its relentless rainfall, reaching an all-time record of 51 inches.  Numerous flash flood emergencies and surges left most of the area under water.  27 trillion gallons of rain were dumped over a period of six days.  More than 72,000 people required rescue.  Temporary shelter will be needed for 30,000 people.  It is estimated that losses from Harvey will amount to $75 billion.

HURRICANE IRMA
Hurricane Irma is the strongest Atlantic hurricane on record.  The storm spent three days as a Category 5.  Winds topped 185 mph, the strongest ever recorded.  This led to the largest evacuation in history.

Irma first hit land on September 6th, decimating the Caribbean Island of Barbuda.  It then continued it destructive path across Antigua, St. Barthelemy, St. Martin, Anguilla, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Turks & Caicos.  Several islands, including Barbuda and St. Martin, have lost over 90% of their infrastructure.  Homelessness, food insecurity and looting are major issues.

Irma’s impact covered 90% of the State of Florida.  It first hit land in the Keys and turned streets in Miami into raging rivers as floodwaters surged.  Devastating storm surges battered coastlines, particularly from Naples up through Tampa and Jacksonville. Winds howled like jet engines.  Tornado warnings were issued all evening.  Over six million residents were without power.  The states of Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina also experienced effects from Irma.  Damage is still being assessed but it is estimated that it will be in the billions.

HURRICANE MARIA
Less than two weeks after areas in the Caribbean were hit by Hurricane Irma, Maria moved in as a Category 5 hurricane.  It has caused devastation as it moved through the Caribbean.

On the tiny island of Dominica, the storm killed 15 and destroyed everything within its path.  The Prime Minister called it “mind-boggling’ damage.  Estimates are that 90% of the island was destroyed.

The storm smashed into Puerto Rico as a Category 4 hurricane, the strongest to hit the island in nearly a century.  Officials are describing conditions as “apocalyptic”.  The island was left without communications, water or power and much of its infrastructure is gone.  Adding to the crisis is the insecurity of a dam which is on the verge of collapse.

The need for food, water, medical supplies and basic health supplies is severe.  The University is partnering with City, State and relief agencies to try to assist.

Make a Tax-Deductible Donation to assist in the aftermath of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Maria and the Earthquake in Mexico

CUNY has established a fund for charitable donations to assist in the aftermath of the tragedy. Tax-deductible donations can be made via check or money order payable to CUNY Research  Foundation with memo indicating “Disaster Relief Fund 78511-00-15”. The money collected will be distributed to a reputable agency providing direct support to the victims.
