Raising awareness

CyberSafe at USPS team aims to boost knowledge

CyberSafe at USPS team members Karina Eldredge and Kristen Bensley distribute information to employees at the recent fair.

If you were unable to attend the Postal Service’s recent Cybersecurity Awareness Fair, you can participate in the event virtually.

The CyberSafe at USPS team is offering downloadable materials from the first-of-its-kind event, which featured interactive presentations and exhibits on a variety of cybersecurity topics.

The information is available on the CyberSafe at USPS Blue site, along with a recap of the event and other highlights.

More than 300 employees attended the fair, which was held at USPS headquarters in Washington, DC. Participants included representatives from the CyberSecurity Operations Center, Corporate Information Security Office and Postal Inspection Service, as well as Privacy and Records and the Corporate Communications’ social media team.

External participants included Department of Homeland Security, Carnegie Mellon University and the MRM/McCann advertising agency.

In a post-fair survey, 90 percent of attendees said the information provided at the event improved their overall knowledge of cybersecurity.

The event was part of the CyberSafe at USPS team’s efforts to mark National Cyber Security Awareness Month, which is held each October.

Employees who have questions or want additional information can email the team.
