Plan to attend Cybersecurity Awareness Day and protect yourself online. Begins at 2 p.m. in Tucker Hall.
The day’s agenda is as follows:
Celebrated every October, National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) was created as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure everyone has the resources needed to stay safer and more secure online.
As an official NCSAM Champion, Lee College recognizes its commitment to cybersecurity and online safety. Thousands of mobile devices and computer systems connect daily to the Lee College network directly or indirectly. This connectivity enables the campus community to teach, learn and connect with resources throughout the world. It also presents opportunities for cyber criminals to penetrate security defenses like the recent attacks at Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase and Target.
We will continue to see more phishing scams, malware, keystroke loggers and identify theft if cybercrime continues to proliferate at its present rate. Cybersecurity takes all of us working together to mitigate attacks and be aware of suspicious e-mail attachments and offers that are just too good to be true.
