October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month, a global effort to help everyone stay safe when using technology, whenever and however you connect. This year’s theme is “It’s easy to stay safe online.”
Throughout the month, Information Technology Services (ITS) will be sharing information about four basic cybersecurity behaviors that anyone can practice to take control of their online lives, whether at work, home, or school:
- Use multi-factor authentication (MFA)
- Use strong passwords and a password manager
- Update your software
- Recognize and report phishing
Taking these basic steps can make a huge difference.
