Cybersafe Day

April 6, 2017 at 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Cyberattacks, identity theft, and online scams are all over the news lately. Many attacks against institutions like FIT succeed because of something a community member did (clicking on something they shouldn’t) or didn’t do (use a strong password). Join IT for FIT Thursday, April 6, for Cybersafe Day, to learn what you should and shouldn’t do.
