Cyber Security Awareness Month-Own IT

  • Published: Thursday, Oct. 10, 2019

October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. This year’s message is Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT.

Own IT

  • Treat your privacy like money. Protect it. Take the time to visit your privacy settings on a regular basis. Are you providing personal information to the world? Lock it down.
  • Be mindful of how much you disclose on social media. Don’t post ‘real-time’ information that tells everyone where you are and what you are doing. Think twice before sending those messages and pictures. Once sent, it is now out of your control.
  • Make sure to keep your apps up to date. Many security controls and vulnerability patches are included in updates. Only download apps from well vetted sources such as Apple and Google Play. Read reviews. Delete unused apps.

Remember, YOU are in control of how much information you release on the Internet. Take control. Own IT.
