Summer Camp Keeps Teens Interested in Science

Tips for Protecting Your Cell Phone or PDA
As cell phones and PDAs become more technologically advanced, attackers are finding new ways to target victims. Protect yourself: be careful about posting your cell phone number and e-mail address, be wary of links or downloadable software sent in e-mail or text messages, evaluate your security settings, and encrypt your device if it contains sensitive data. Do you have ideas that should be shared as security tips of the
week? If so, send them to UnivIT_SP@ur.rochester.edu.
