Tech Bits: Have a #CyberSafeSemester this October - Part 2

Date

Wednesday, October 9, 2019

It's time for part 2 of our National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) Tech Bit. As a reminder, all month long we'll be sharing tips to help you have a #CyberSafeSemester. For this week's tip, learn how to keep your online information secure while on the go. 

  • Secure your connection. Be mindful when using unsecured wireless networks. Wifi networks in airport terminals, stores and local coffee shops are convenient and often don't require log-in credentials but using them is a risk. They put you on a network with cybercriminals who may be lurking in the area with ways to intercept any personal information that you enter (i.e. Credit Card Numbers, Usernames and Passwords, Social Security Numbers). Be mindful when using these networks and never enter confidential information.¬†
