Why This Session is Important to You:
As part of the October awareness month activities, the MS-ISAC is coordinating a joint webcast with DHS and NCSA, which will provided useful guidance to the non-technical user on the necessary steps to protect themselves and their computers from cyber incidents.
The Internet is a great place to explore and is a new playground of brilliant possibilities, but there's trouble often hiding in its shadows. That trouble can come in many forms, including malicious software, trickery, and identity theft. In this presentation, Ron Woerner will talk about the evils of the Internet, how the bad hackers can take over your computer and how they get your private information. It's not all doom and gloom, though. He will also show you some easy, everyday steps to protect yourself and others online. This session will focus on the basics of computer security, such as using strong passwords, use of external devices, phishing and social engineering, and protecting mobile devices. Come to this interactive presentation and learn simple tips for online safety and security for you, your organization, and your family.

Format of Webcast:
This session will feature an interactive Powerpoint presentation accompanied by audio.
The National Webcast Initiative:
The Department of Homeland Security's National Cyber Security Division and the Multi-State Information Sharing and Analysis Center (MS-ISAC), a division of the Center for Internet Security, have partnered to establish the National Webcast Initiative comprising a series of national webcasts which examine critical and timely cyber security issues. Embracing the concept that security is everyone's responsibility, these webcasts are available to a broad audience to help raise awareness and knowledge levels. A number of vendors have offered their services at no cost to help develop and deliver the webcasts.

The National Webcast Initiative is also coordinated by the New York State Forum. For more information about the Initiative, please visit: http://www.msisac.org/webcast/. If you have any questions, please contact the MS-ISAC via phone at 518/880-0686 or email at info@msisac.org
