National Cyber Security Awareness Month kicks off their first week with tips to stay secure online

We are excited to kick off the first week of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. For this week, we are focusing on how to secure yourself at home. We have a tremendous number of resources to help you.

Remember, you are free, and in fact encouraged, to share these materials with others, including your family, friends and neighbors.

If you have any questions about our activities in October or suggestions on how to improve our cyber security efforts, please contact Terri Jones (, or X7953). She is overall responsible for our security awareness program and will be happy to hear from you.

Week 01: STOP. THINK. CONNECT™: Simple Steps to Online Safety

Staying secure online is our shared responsibility. Here is easy-to-follow, actionable advice for everyone. STOP: Make sure security measures are in place. THINK: about the consequences of your actions and behaviors online. CONNECT: and enjoy the Internet.

It is critical for anyone using the Internet to continue to learn about and consistently practice good cybersecurity habits. To better protect yourself, you should secure your home networks and mobile devices and take the time to learn how to use the Internet more safely, securely and responsibly. Week 1 will address the top consumer cyber concern, provide simple steps to protect against these concerns and teach you what to do if you fall victim to a cybercrime.
