Week 3 / Today’s predictions for tomorrow’s Internet – 10.16.17
Welcome to the third week of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. This week we focus on just how digitally connected our world has become. Specifically, how we can reduce cybersecurity threats as we move closer to an always-connected “Internet of things.”
Please help protect yourself against cyber criminals by:
- Reading a security awareness newsletter on passphrases, a password creation technique to make all your devices—from smartphone and tablet to Internet connected thermostats and refrigerators—more secure.
- Reading a security awareness newsletter on the Internet of Things (IoT) that describes Internet connected “smart” devices such as doorbells, light bulbs, WiFi routers, thermostats and refrigerators—and how to make them more secure.
- Reviewing a poster on all the different ways your online identity, accounts and systems have value to cyber criminals.
- Viewing a video (3 minutes) on malware, what it is, some common examples such as ransomware, and what you can do to stop it.
If you have any questions about any of this information, please contact your college’s Information Security Manager.
