The Information Security Office has created a new series of classes to help the campus community understand and deal with current security threats. The series will cover a broad range of information security topics including understanding and protecting yourself from viruses/malware and identity theft, online security and privacy, and how to protect your computer and your data. Each class will focus on one topic and provide participants in depth information as well as recommended security best practices related to the topic. Participants who complete all required classes will earn the Information Security Awareness Certificate. Please be sure to check the Information Security website (www.utdallas.edu/infosecurity) for updates about classes and information sessions. To register for any class, please sign up online at: http://www.utdallas.edu/infosecurity/Classes_R_FacStaff_2.html
In this session, we will discuss potential risks of using social networking and communication sites, such as Face book, MySpace, blogs, and wikis, and give you tips to keep yourself and your data safe in today's online world.
