Tech Tip of the Week: Cyber Security Newsletters

From the IT Group:

Our friends from Sans Institute want to help you protect yourself when using social networks:

Social networking sites are one of the most exciting and powerful technologies on the Internet. These are virtual, online communities allowing people to connect to each other from around the world. On these sites, you create an account, post information about yourself, and share information with your friends, family and fellow co-workers. You can also track others to learn what they are currently doing. Different sites are used for different purposes.

Sites such as LinkedIn are used for professional or work-related activities, while sites like Facebook are used for personal activities. Social networking sites are powerful tools that allow you to communicate with friends and family around the world. However, be careful what you share, how you share it, and with whom.

Our friends from Sans Institute also want to help you secure your mobile devices:

Mobile devices, such as smartphones, have become one of the primary ways people communicate and interact with the Internet. You can instantly talk to or message anyone around the world. In addition, you can now carry the power of a computer in your pocket. However, with all these new capabilities come risks. In this newsletter, we explain the dangers and the steps you can take to use your mobile devices securely.
