CSAM’13: The Events Catalogue

Team Matrix and SCIT will be back this October when we celebrate the Cyber Security Awareness Month! This awareness programme which has a global outreach will invite people from various communities together to discuss how Information Security is everyone’s shared responsibility. With an array of assorted events and discussions lined up, CSAM’13 is on course to scale new heights!
While the Online events will generate a buzz, a sense of inquisitiveness about what’s to come during the main event, the D-Day events will focus on how we should nurture the growth of Information technology by making each of us self-reliant and responsible for securing ourselves online.
The dossier of assorted online events to generate interest among the audience is given below. When you see the likes of corporate biggies such as IBM taking up Security Awareness initiatives as a part of CSAM, you can weigh the importance of Security awareness Team Matrix and SCIT focuses on.
