Cyber Security: Stop. Think. Connect.
As part of National Cyber Security Awareness month, University IT reminds you to: Stop—before you use the Internet, take time to understand the risks and learn how to spot potential problems; Think—take a moment to be certain the path is clear ahead. Watch for warning signs and consider how your actions online could impact your safety; and Connect—enjoy the Internet with greater confidence, knowing you've taken the right steps to safeguard yourself and your computer. How cyber savvy are you? Try these interactive quizzes.
