April 3, 2012, Volume 58, No. 28

April 10
Noon-1 p.m.

Class of '47, Houston Hall

Technology continues to improve our lives in so many ways. From paying bills online to reconnecting with friends from the past, to taking a work process that used to take three hours and turning it into a half hour project, technology has been integrated into our lives. Along with these benefits comes the responsibility of keeping your data secure. PPSA is here to help. On April 10,  Josh Beeman, information security officer and Lauren Steinfeld, senior advisor for privacy and compliance, will present Being Smart Online: Top Security and Privacy Tips. They will give tips on how to protect yourselves on social media and portable devices such as our phone, finding apps that help with security, how to avoid common mistakes involving passwords, attachments and personal data and our responsibility to keep Penn’s data safe and protected. Most of us know someone who has had their identity stolen by hackers. Learn how you can avoid being a victim. Then take the information back to your family and friends so they can protect themselves as well.

This session is open to the University community. To attend please register at ppsa@exchange.upenn.edu
