This week we will discuss making cybersecurity a priority, both at work and at home, particularly in this time of occasional to full-time work-from-home. We’ll look at how we can begin to think about cybersecurity first whenever we are adding devices to our home network and dealing with personal and work data.
This week we are examining two topics that are closely related. The number of potential careers in cybersecurity are expanding rapidly, with positions in everything from “in the weeds” technical to very interpersonal management and legal positions. Cybersecurity is one of the hottest sectors today, with new threats and challenges emerging each day. And with that, there is a huge push being undertaken by both business and education sectors to attract individuals toward a degree and career in cyber.

With the arrival of June, summer is in full swing. Welcome to the time when everyone else thinks we as a college community have it easy, when we all know that is NEVER the case. Summer is always busy, busy, busy on all fronts, but I’m preaching to the choir here. Between projects, recruitment, alumni events, and yes, even classes, everyone has their hands full, which makes us all prime targets of phishers and scammers.
“You say that every month!”, you say. Yes, I do, but I usually give a new or recycled reason for why we are prime targets.
May has arrived and if you are like me you are gearing up for summer while trying to finish up the semester. This frantic time of finals, final papers, showcases, productions, graduation, and all other manner of “showing your work”…
