Event Details

10/17/2018: Phishing, Malware & Incidents - Oh My!
Learn phishing basics, tips, and tricks that you need to know to protect your data. We will also look at common "bait" used to attract State of Illinois employees.    

10/24/2018: Privacy & Security - Why we Need Both!
Have you ever considered how much information you can find on someone with no more than a username or email address? Few people realize the sheer amount of personal information that is stored online. We will provide a demonstration of just how easy it is for others to dig up one's personal information.

10/31/2018: Trick or Treat - Cyber Threats at Your Front Door!
Ghosts and Goblins seem pretty tame compared to phishing scams. Technology breeds crime. This lively webinar will focus on guessing which emails or text are "phishing tricks" or which are legitimate "treats". Will you be tricked or will you receive a treat?

Host: Valerie Bolinger, Network Services Coordinator
