OIT’s Cybersecurity department coordinates University information security initiatives, creates awareness for information security issues, and investigates information security incidents.
Make Your Home a Haven for Online Security
This week focuses on cybersecurity in a person’s home/personal life, as these key behaviors translate well between both work and home.
Today, many households have parents, toddlers, tweens, teens and grandparents living under one roof. Each of these age groups is likely to have unique awareness levels and online habits. With consumer interest in smart home products increasing – 48 percent of U.S. consumers intend to buy at least one smart home device in 2018 ‒ ongoing education for all generations is critical. By continuously learning about and practicing good cybersecurity at home, the entire household and online community at large will reap the benefits of a more secure, connected world.
Security is non-negotiable and security awareness isn’t limited to the workplace. Watch and share Symantec’s FREE Security Awareness Quick Tip video series for brief, actionable information to share with your friends and family! Be sure to talk to your friends and family about the inherent risks associated with their actions at work, at home and at school whether they’re online or not.
We encourage you to share these materials with others, including your family, friends, and neighbors. If you have any questions about our activities in October or suggestions on how to improve our cybersecurity efforts, please contact us at email@example.com.
