October is Cyber Security Awareness Month - Be Smart Online

Be Web wise

  • Stay current. Keep pace with new ways to stay safe online: check trusted websites for the latest information, share with friends and family, and encourage them to be Web wise.
  • Think before you act: be wary of communications that implore you to act immediately, offer something too good to be true, or ask for personal information. 
  • Back it up: make electronic copies of your work and store it safely. 

Be a good online citizen

  • Safer for you is more secure for all: what you do online affects not only you, but potentially everyone else sharing the network with you. Practicing good online habits benefits everyone. See protecting your computer.
