October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, an annual campaign to raise awareness about cybersecurity. The month’s themes educate students and professionals about cybersecurity attack methods, best practices, and preventive measures and are geared toward informing the next generation of cybersecurity professionals. According to a study by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education, by 2022, there will be a shortage of 1.8 million information security workers. It is critical that today’s students graduate ready to enter the workforce and are open to learning more about the growing field of cybersecurity.
