Tip Sheets

Here are some tip sheets to help keep you safe online. 

Secure It

Secure your digital profile

Cybercriminals are very good at getting personal information from unsuspecting victims and the methods are getting more sophisticated as technology evolves. Protect against cyber threats by learning about security features available on the equipment and software you use.

Apply additional layers of security to your devices – like Multi-Factor Authentication_ to better protect your personal information.

Protect It

Maintain your digital profile. Every click, share, send, and post you make creates a digital trail that can be exploited by cybercriminals. To protect yourself from becoming a cybercrime victim you must understand, secure, and maintain your digital profile. Be familiar with and routinely check privacy settings to help protect your privacy and limit cybercrimes.

Own It

Understand your digital profile

Internet based devices are present in every aspect of our lives: at home, school, work and on the go. Constant connection provides opportunities for innovation and modernization but also presents opportunities for potential cybersecurity threats that can compromise your most important personal information. Understand the devices and applications you use every day to help keep you and your information safe and secure.

Data Privacy Day

Data Privacy Day is January 28, 2020

Millions of people are unaware of and uninformed about how their personal information is being used, collected or shared in our digital society. Data Privacy Day aims to inspire dialogue and empower individuals and companies to take action.

One of the ways to stay safe online and protect your privacy is to update your privacy settings. You can use this website, powered by the National Cyber Security Alliance, to find the direct links on popular devices and online services to update your privacy settings.

cybersecurity month

This October join us as we participate in National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). This is a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safe and secure online while increasing the resilience of the Nation against cyber threats. The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) co-lead NCSAM and the Johnson County Government is a National Cyber Security Awareness Champion.

This year’s overarching theme is “OWN IT. SECURE IT. PROTECT IT.” Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. When we all take simple steps to be safer online, it makes using the Internet a more secure experience for everyone.
