CAHS has two presentations at the Think-In, one by OET and another by Dr. Heather Ramsdell on LiveBinders and OneNote – Eliminating Paper in Course Projects!
Yes, October was Cyber Security Awareness Month. But I did not post about it and figured I would piggy back on it now. Can’t say enough about cyber security but just wanted to reiterate some of the highlights from last month: Protect your passwords. Did You Know? 1 in 3 workers write down their computer password and leave it where others can see it, undermining their security Don’t click e-mail links from unknown senders Update your antivirus profiles daily Don’t walk away from your mobile devices Encrypt sensitive data on all devices Enable firewalls
Back it up: Protect your valuable work, music, photos, and other digital information by making an electronic copy and storing it safely.
Protect your $$: When banking and shopping, check to be sure the sites is security enabled. Look for web addresses with “https://” or “shttp://”, which means the site takes extra measures to help secure your information. “Http://” is not secure.
STOP. Before you use the Internet, take time to understand the risks and learn how to spot potential problems.
THINK. Take a moment to be certain the path is clear ahead. Watch for warning signs and consider how your actions online could impact your safety, or your family’s.
CONNECT. Enjoy the Internet with greater confidence, knowing you’ve taken the right steps to safeguard yourself and your computer.
