The Intrinium Review, November 2020

The Intrinium Review, November 2020

As the winter begins to set in, things are staying hot here at Intrinium! Last week was National Cybersecurity Career Awareness Week (more information can be found at this link). The week focuses on raising  awareness about the importance of cybersecurity positions across our Nation, ensuring that all Americans have the resources they need to be safer and more secure online and building enthusiasm for work within the field. While Intrinium kept our social media hopping with tips, tricks and knowledge for you to be better aware and protected – an end to the week doesn’t mean an end to the need for awareness. November 30th is National Computer Security Day. 

On November 2, 1988, Cornell University researchers uncovered an unknown virus lurking in their computer systems. Within hours of discovery, the “Morris worm” virus invaded several other university systems as well as the ARPANET, an early version of today’s internet. 

Six days later,  two computer experts with the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) recommended assembling  a “National Computer Infection Action Team”  to respond 24/7, 365 to these kinds of attacks. On November 14, the Software Engineering Institute, a research center connected with Carnegie Mellon University and set up the Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT).  

In 1988, the National Computer Security Day was established as a way to raise awareness about cyber crimes and viruses.  November 30 was chosen for CSD so that attention on computer security would remain high during the holiday season – when people are typically more focused on the busy shopping season than thwarting security threats.
