The high-technology world we live in brings new opportunities and challenges everyday. Even criminals have taken to the information highway to exhibit their behavior. We now have high-tech crimes, including cyber-based terrorism, espionage, computer intrusions, and major cyber fraud.
It is important to become aware of the various attacks and behaviors so we can protect ourselves. To do so we need to stay in front of the current and emerging trends. One of the Office of Information Security Services goals is to provide cyber security awareness - to gather and share cyber security information with the campus.
Data Privacy Day this year is on January 28th, 2016. This year's theme is Respecting Privacy, Safeguarding Data and Enabling Trust. Throughout the month following Data Privacy Day the Office of Information Security Services will be sharing information about protecting campus sensitive data.
The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) would like to share with us 5 Ways to Help Employees be Privacy Aware. You can find additional information at staysafeonline.org/dpd.
