Back to School Cyber Security Campaign

What's the Back to School Cyber Security Campaign

During September, UCSB Security will launch the Back to School Cyber Security Campaign on all UCSB IT platforms. 

As students prepare for another school year, UCSB Security wants to ensure that cyber safety is not overlooked. 

The campaign will include awareness announcements and tips about how to avoid the unwanted consequences of phishing, malware, impersonators, hackers, and all other threats to vulnerable devices.

Students, faculty, and staff can follow the campaign on social media by using the hashtag #btsucinfosec. 

UCSB Security urges you to use your social media channels and help spread the word to establish cyber security campus wide. It’s easy to include the #btsucinfosec hashtag to materials that relate to this campaign and a wealth of information already exists online.
