FIT’s annual Cybersafe Day event, held this year on April 17, brought members of the student, faculty, and staff communities together to focus on issues around cybersafety as well as cybercivility, an issue with ties to FIT’s campuswide civility initiative. Among the highlights of the day:
- An exhibition featuring the photography of FIT faculty member Ron Amato and the incivility it generated on social media
- A station linked to Have I Been P*wned, a website that allows you to determine if your email address and/or password has been exposed in online breaches (Click here to find out more on the Cybersafe website.)
- Mean Media, an exhibition documenting real examples of online incivility among members of the FIT community
- A panel featuring Bill Reinisch, acting chair of the Entrepreneurship department, and Marc Schein, from Marsh and McClennan, focusing on the importance of cybersecurity in business
- A panel moderated by Dr. Ron Milon that discussed cybercivility at FIT

In addition, IT has added another feature to the Cybersafe website: a map that documents countries from which they’ve seen and blocked actual cyberattacks against FIT.
