Cybersafe Day April 2017 (Past Event)

Cyberattacks, identity theft, and online scams are all over the news lately. Many attacks against institutions like FIT succeed because of something a community member did (clicking on something they shouldn’t) or didn’t do (use a strong password).

Thank you to the over 60 members of the FIT community that joined us on Thursday, April 6 for Cybersafe day. If you missed the day’s events, you can review some of the presentations and instructions from the hands-on demonstrations so you too can learn what you should and shouldn’t do to stay Cybersafe. Be sure to stay tuned for emails from Cybersafe about future events.
