Tech Bits: Have a #CyberSafe Semester this October - Part 1

Date

Wednesday, October 2, 2019

Want to be more cyber secure? Information Technology Services is sharing information all October for National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) to help you protect yourself online. This year's theme is Own IT, Secure IT and Protect IT. So, let's jump right in! 

Own your accounts: 

  • Strengthen your password by using phrases, numbers and symbols to secure your online accounts. Make it fun and unique! 
  • Don't use the same password for multiple accounts. If someone gets your password on one account, and it's the same one for other accounts, that person can get into all your accounts. 
  • Enable multi-factor authentication to access your account, if a website has this option. It will add an extra layer of security and keep cybercriminals out.
