Tech Tip of the Week: Hacked – Now What?

From the IT Group:

As you are aware, the IT Group is providing Cyber Security Awareness Training to you through May 2013. As part of this training, videos addressing cyber security topics are released to you monthly and newsletters are available to you that reinforce the message in these short videos.

Here is a portion of one newsletter you may find helpful:

Using computers on the Internet is like driving a car – you take steps to protect yourself but an accident can happen at any time. With computers and the Internet it is the same. You take the proper steps to protect yourself, but your computer or your personal information may be hacked. You are often not in control of your own data; other companies or organizations control it. Retail stores record your purchases, your mobile company tracks your phone calls, and your doctor stores your medical records. Not only do you have to worry about protecting your own data, you have to worry about others protecting your data.

To learn how to tell if your computer has been hacked and how to respond, visit our cyber security newsletters.
