Cybersecurity Awareness

Covid-19 has introduced new routines like working or learning from home, so it’s important to make sure that you stay cyber aware and secure in your home, office, and school. During these times and even beyond, we are committed to helping our students, alumni, partners, and community enhance their cyber awareness for our evolving, remote world. This will include training events, tips from our faculty and staff experts, online learning resources, and how to engage through our other programs.

Navigating Through Cybersecurity In The Business World

Getting hacked can destroy customer trust and cost companies millions of dollars in legal fees, investigations, damage control, and lost income.

Regardless of industry, protection from these attacks must be a top priority. Too many companies underestimate this threat or simply don't know how to protect themselves until it's too late.

As a first step towards helping veteran-owned small businesses understand this risk, the UWF Center for Cybersecurity and the Military & Veterans Resource Center hosted a free workshop on cybersecurity preparedness.

Does Your Cyber Hygiene Need a Brush-Up?

Just like changing your toothbrush for optimal personal hygiene, your cyber hygiene also needs a refresh. For example, when’s the last time you changed your password for your home WiFi? …Uh-o, did we get your attention? ... Well, some good news!

We hosted a free education session that provided best practices for cyber hygiene; and, more importantly, a cyber safe home office and/or home school. The panel included cybersecurity professionals (who are also moms, dads, teachers, and working professionals working remote) from the Center who lead the discussion and shared everyday tips they are using right now in their homes which you can also implement immediately.
