Cyber Security Awareness Month Wrap-Up

Thanks to everyone who participated in National Cyber Security Awareness Month this October! Cyber security is a shared responsibility of all who use web resources.

We covered many security topics this month! Here is a short summary:

Passwords – When was the last time you changed yours?

Passwords are critically important to protect your data. Make sure your password is strong and never share it with others.

Have you tried KeePass or Password Gorilla yet? To have a technician assist you call the Helpdesk at x7741 or email us at computingservices@adams.edu

Mobile Device Security – Secure your mobile devices. Use pin codes and enable remote wipe.

Did you take the risk calculator quiz?

The higher your risk score, the more important likely you are to be targeted. It is important that you STOP.THINK.CONNECT!

Remember, each and every one of us needs to do our part to make sure that our online lives are kept safe and secure. We need to keep security in mind all year long, not just in October.

Stay safe, and Happy Halloween!
