Information Technology to host cyber security sessions

As a part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, the Office of Information Technology is offering four unique cyber security sessions in October. 

Sessions are on Tuesdays and designed for “average” technology users. More advanced technology users may also benefit. Faculty, staff and students are encouraged to attend. 

Each session is from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and will be in Morris Library, rooms 752-754. The sessions are: 

  • Oct. 3 – “Cyber Security 101: Prevention and Response.” Richard Smith. The session will cover viruses, scams, hacked accounts, social engineering and protecting your devices.
  • Oct. 17 – “Protect Your Rights.” Bill Bruns. Discussion will be on digital rights, privacy issues and how to protect your reputation and legacy.
  • Oct. 24 – “Securing the Saluki-Cyber Awareness.” Prabha Manda and Abby Razer. Ways to be cyber aware and protecting sensitive data.
  • Oct. 31 – “Trouble by Another Name is Still Trouble.” Jimmy Brown. Discussion on common cyber security threats and how to know you are protected from them. 

Seating is limited, so pre-registration is preferred.  To pre-register email Linda Hubbs at olindahubbs@siu.edu with the dates you would like to attend. If registering multiple people, include session dates and contact information for each person you want to register.
