Cyber Security Awareness

There are four critical areas of cyber security students need to give careful attention.

Phishing

Phishing Schemes: Don't Take the Bait

Phishing schemes are attempts by hackers to fool you into giving up your username and password, often without realizing you've done it.

Copyright

Copyright Awareness: CopyRIGHT Not WrongStudents have a lot of freedom when it comes to the use of copyrighted resources for educational purposes.  But with great freedom comes great responsibility - and big penalties if you get it wrong.  

Passwords

Password Safety: Are You Protected?Having a good password is like remembering to lock your door when you leave your house: it's a fundamental of security.  Picking one that is complex yet rememberable may be easier than you think.

File Sharing

File Sharing: Beware What You ShareSure, there's plenty of places online or via P2P sharing programs where you can download lots of interesting files.  But those files could come with programs that steal your identity or copyright violations that ruin your financial future.
