October is Cyber Security Month. Cyber security is all about protecting yourself and your data online. The Cyber Security and Forensics Student Organization (CSFSO) wants to help highlight the importance of that security with a conference happening on Saturday, October 22nd from 10am-5pm in New Main L206.
The conference will have multiple workshops including internet safety for parents and children, social media security, and mobile device security. There will also be free security checkups and cleanings of computing and networking devices.
