About this event

Cybersecurity is the collected set of technologies, processes, and procedures organizations use to protect their computing environments from damage and unauthorized data access perpetrated by cybercriminals or malicious insiders. Using strong passwords, updating your software, thinking before you click on suspicious links, and turning on multi-factor authentication are the basics of what we call “cyber hygiene” and will drastically improve your online safety.
