2023 Cybersecurity Awareness Month Tech Talks

Join Us for Tech Talks all month!

Throughout the month of October we will be hosting tech talks to help you navigate safely online at work and home. This year, Cybersecurity Awareness Month is focusing on four key behaviors: enabling multi-factor authentication, using strong passwords and a password manager, updating software regularly, and recognizing and reporting phishing. Our speakers will be providing information that you can incorporate in your everyday cyber life to help you stay safe  online.
