For more information, or to find out if you qualify, please call 410-396-5555.

Cyber Security Awareness Month

Pinned on: Friday, October 04, 2013

As October begins, Mayor’s Office of Information technology (MOIT) is pleased to announce the city’s participation as a “Champion” for the 10th annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month 2013. The tradition started in 2004 when the National Cyber Security Alliance (founded in 2001 as a partnership of the federal government, private companies, and nonprofit associations) spearheaded a push to educate the public and make all aware of the ever-present threats that are found online.   The Mayor’s Office of Information Technology will be sending out tips you can use in order to not only be more aware of what threats may be looming, but how to access and work with the internet and computer systems with more confidence by understanding what the threats may look like, and how to avoid them or react to them as needed. Lets’ all STOP. THINK.CONNECT while on-line.
