Please join APSU's own Stephanie Taylor, Director of IT Security, and Dr. Joseph Elarde, Associate Professor for Computer Science and Information Technology, for an October National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NSCAM) event, open to anyone and everyone in the APSU community.

 

Overview: Using Halloween as a backdrop, Ms. Taylor and Dr. Elarde will present practical tools and techniques in a fun and interactive environment to give you simple but effective ways to stay safe in a dangerous cyber world.  It’s easy to be frightened and not know what to do when you are bombarded with the news of yet more sophisticated cyber threats and attacks every day.   But protecting your personal data from malicious use is more important than ever.  Says NCSAM: “The Internet is a shared resource, and securing it is our shared responsibility”.  This means it takes all of us working together to keep the Internet safe and to thwart the “bad guys” from stealing valuable personal information.   So bring your lunch if you’d like, and prepare to have fun while learning how to stay safe online.  And refreshments will be served!
