Security Tip of the Week
National Cyber Security Awareness Month- Student Statistics
October's National Cyber Security Awareness Month focuses on young adults, students and kids. The Internet is becoming a larger and larger part of everyone's life, especially for young people. It is important to remember that cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. You can follow the link below for a printable poster which includes statistics and tips for talking to your kids and others about the importance of cybersecurity.
Here are some examples:
- 18% of young adults claim they are comfortable with what their friends post about them online. Be judicious and respectful when using social media.
- Create an open and honest environment with kids regarding their Internet use.
- Emphasize to your kids the concept of credibility on the Internet- not everything they see online is true.
