March 9, 2022 via Teams – OIT Safety and the Internet 

Brooke Denney, Information Security Analyst II 

As a business continuity coordinator, we address how to cope with an unexpected loss of technology, the discussion sometimes leads to home networks, computer “hackers” and how to better protect both personal and work data from a nefarious attack.

Topics covered in this session will include:  

  • Things to educate your family about to ensure security and privacy
