Cybersecurity Workshop to help you protect your assets
SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WICS) —
It was a day full of learning as the Lincoln Land Community College hosted a workshop on cybersecurity.
It was part of the Security Awareness Day Program on campus from 10 am to 12 pm.
Instructors talked about proper passwords, online identifications, and how to tell which websites were real and fake.
Organizers say it's important people know how to protect themselves.
"I think it's a vital aspect to the community to let them know to be self-aware,” Professor Jeff Mehan, Lincoln Land Community College.
“Especially since most people are buying these technology tools and really don't have a true understanding of how safe they are."
This event was open to the public.
L.L.C.C. will also offer a new cybersecurity certificate program starting this fall.
