Creating Stronger Passwords

Think of your password like your toothbrush, you wouldn’t want to share that with anyone. Never disclose your passwords to anyone else. If you think that someone else knows your password, change it immediately. “Do your part, #BeCyberSmart”

Share With Care

What goes online, stays online. Think twice before you click to post in case so you don’t embarrass or otherwise harm yourself or others. Employers and University admissions personnel use social media to screen candidates before hiring or approving their application. Always ask friends if it’s OK before posting photos of them or their children. “Do your part, #BeCyberSmart”
