Watch “Cyber Security 101” for UB students


Published October 19, 2018

In October 2018, UB’s Information Security Office partnered with UB Libraries to offer "Cyber Security 101" sessions for UB students, staff and faculty as part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. A recording of the student session is now available in Panopto.

For college students, “putting yourself out there” is part of building an academic and professional career. For that reason, students are a frequent target of cyber attacks attempting to steal their identity, personal information, money and more.

This session is designed to arm you with the knowledge you need to stay safe in a changing digital world. Topics include:

  • The latest techniques criminals use to steal your information
  • Tips for protecting your devices from attacks
  • Best ways to use social media to avoid being a target and damaging future job prospects
  • Things to avoid when making a password
