What is the Cybersecurity Education and Awareness Program?

The purpose of the Cybersecurity Education and Awareness Program is to assess and prioritize the awareness and education needs of Queen鈥檚 students, staff, and faculty. The Program outlines a framework for providing security-related information and messaging to students, staff, and faculty in order to support general cybersecurity awareness.
