February 21: Introduction to Cyber Security

There are billions of connections on the internet between humans and computers. Inside those connections, cybercriminals attempt to seamlessly blend into your email and texts. Which begs the question, how do I know that I am protected?

One of the strongest defenses is awareness. The phrase "knowledge is power" couldn't be more applicable to the realm of cyber security. In this session, you will learn:

  • what different types of "hacks" are -- and what they mean for you;
  • how to stay safe on social media, both in account security and the information you share; and
  • what to do if you get hacked or receive malicious email, phone call, or text.
You will leave this training with the ability to deter common online scams and the foundations of a strong, safe online presence.

The training ends at 1pm Eastern / Washington D.C. time.
