Cybersecurity and Critical Infrastructure

NCSAM Week 5 - Protecting Critical Infrastructure from Cyber Threats

The essential systems that support our daily lives - such as electricity, financial institutions, and transportation - are all dependent upon the Internet. Building resilience in critical infrastructure is crucial to our national security. This week highlights the roles the public can play in keeping it secure.

  • Secure your online accounts and devices with strong authentication.
  • Keep a clean machine! Updating your security software & operating system is the best defense against cyber threats. WPI computers managed by ITS are updated. Be sure to take action to update personal devices.
  • November is Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience Month (CISR), highlighting the tie between cybersecurity and our nation's critical infrastructure. The Department of Homeland Security provides information and guidance.
