Cyber Security Awareness Month Never Ends!
October, 2014 ended the 10th Annual Cyber Security Awareness Month. The Center for Information Technology Services has provided the campus community with a lot of information about how to stay safe online. The end of the month, however, should not be the end of awareness. The number of malicious attacks, phishing attempts, identity thefts, and data breaches are increasing dramatically. To give everyone a toolkit to help with Internet safety we offer the following links:
Would you know what to do if you were a cyber-crime victim? Here is a Victims of Cybercrime Tip Sheet. On Twitter, visit: #NCSAM.
Have you spotted or been a victim of an online scam? The Federal Trade Commission’s Complaint Assistant is a good resource for reporting it.
Online scams are becoming more sophisticated and harder to detect every day. Stay up to date about online scams and report suspicious activity you encounter.
If you would like to know how risky your normal online practices are? You can use the Online Identity Risk Calculator.
Remember: Stop. Think. Connect.
