CyberSecurity and Data Privacy
The Internet is a powerful and useful tool, but in the same way that you shouldn't drive without buckling your seat belt or ride a bike without a helmet, you shouldn't venture online without taking some basic precautions. Cybercriminals have become quite savvy in their attempts to lure people in and get you to click on a link or open an attachment.
To increase awareness of this important event, The University of Scranton's Information Security Office has launched STOP. THINK. CONNECT., a part of the national cybersecurity education and awareness campaign. Protect yourself and help keep the web a safer place for everyone.
During CyberSecurity Day, October 22nd, we passed out tickets to all student visitors to our information table at DeNaples Center. On the ticket was the web address of the page you are now reading. Students can take the quiz below, fill-in the bottom and submit it. You are automatically entered into our CyberSecurity Drawing, where you can win one of (5), $50.00 Amazon Gift Cards. Drawing will take place on November 1, 2013.
