Today’s world is more digital than ever, providing information at our finger tips and making communication and business transactions seamless. However, with this convenience comes cyber threats, risks and even crimes.
October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) and throughout the month, S&T’s Cyber Security Division (CSD) will be sharing helpful information designed to make you more #CyberAware and safe.
Just like locking our cars or homes and looking both ways before crossing the street we need to develop good cybersecurity habits to navigate the digital world. During NCSAM, S&T cyber experts will provide cybersecurity tips to help you safeguard your personal information and devices from a cyber-attack. There are also several events CSD will be hosting or speaking at. We encourage you to attend and engage with us.
Each Tuesday and Thursday during the month, CSD will post valuable cybersecurity tips on our social media platforms to help make your cyber protection stronger. Follow hashtag #CyberAware.
