Cybersecurity is everyone’s responsibility at U-M—faculty, staff, and students. For more than 15 years, ITS Information Assurance (IA) has invited UM-Ann Arbor students, including medical students, to take an online quiz to raise awareness about IT security issues and promote best practices during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Over the last few years, this cybersecurity challenge has expanded to the Dearborn and Flint campuses as well.
This October, 6,240 Ann Arbor students took the quiz. Those who scored 90% or higher on the 10-question quiz were entered into a drawing for prizes.
IA provides a number of tools that help educate the entire U-M community about the importance of IT security and privacy best practices. You too can test your knowledge of cybersecurity!
