During a 2015 event at the Northwestern Institute for Policy Research, participating panelists discussed the digital revolution and the classroom’s exposure to it. At the time, school districts had begun to adopt 1:1 policies, where each student would have access to laptops or tablets.

The most recent data breaches in the health industry demonstrate the ingenuity of today’s cyberattackers. They are testing their mettle, not on one segment of an organization’s defenses, but on all of them - including their victim’s dependence on other vendors that support their business.

You have one new notification! Most people don't think twice about a message from a friend on instant messenger, a link to a funny video from a work colleague, or a USB drive with the latest family album. Most of us also assume the next best cat meme isn't going to offload our banking passwords to a remote server, hijack our system for DoS attacks, or hide all the files on our desktop. Unfortunately, Dorkbot does all of these things. Fortinet's threat research division, FortiGuard Labs reported a 0.98% increase in activity from Dorkbot just... [Read More]

The effort stems from the... [Read More]

The National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) created this awareness program, now in its 10th year, as a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online (#NCSAM). As the NCSA describes it, "Cybersecurity begins with a simple message everyone using the Internet can adopt: STOP. THINK. CONNECT." This message immediately reminds us what we tell our children to...
