Does Your Cyber Hygiene Need a Brush-Up? 

Much like changing your toothbrush for optimal personal hygiene, your cyber hygiene also needs a refresh. For example, when’s the last time you changed your password for your home WiFi?  …Uh-o, did we get your attention? ... Well, we’re here to help! 

On May 6th, we are hosting a special education session and invite you to join us for this free webinar.  We'll guide and provide you with best practices for cyber hygiene; and, more importantly, a cyber safe home office and/or home school. The panel will include cybersecurity professionals (who are also moms, dads, teachers, and professionals working remote) from the Center who will lead the discussion and share everyday tips they are using in their own homes which you can also implement immediately following the event. To conclude the session, we will host a live Q&A to answer your specific questions.

See you there!
