The library is launching a series of talks, called Cyber Smarts, to help you safely navigate the Internet. The first talk will be presented by cybersecurity professional Brian Thompson at Salem Church Branch on September 5, 6:00-7:30.
The rise of digital media in our daily lives can easily leave you feeling overwhelmed. Sometimes, it just seems easier to not worry about taking all the steps needed to stay safe online. Cybersecurity doesn’t have to be daunting. The National Cyber Security Alliance, with the Department of Homeland Security, has created an online safety awareness campaign to help everyone to stay safer online. The steps are easy to remember, just:
- Stop: make sure security measures are in place.
- Think: about the consequences of your online actions.
- Connect: and enjoy the Internet.
Emergencies can spring up when they are least expected - and at the worst possible moments. Quick thinking and action can minimize the damage an emergency could cause. You can become better prepared to handle almost any crisis from natural disasters to minor injuries. Salem Church Branch is hosting a series of information tables where you can pick up tips and techniques from safety experts. Stop by to chat with the friendly staff of local organizations on Tuesdays in July, beginning July 10, 11:00-2:00.
