The Information Technology (IT) Office is starting a series of posts on the topic of Digital Security for Churches. This series seeks to inform and equip our local churches on the best ways to secure their computer networks from various threats. These same principles may be applied to personal equipment and systems as well.
You should begin the habit of considering security first before operating a computer on the internet. Any computer with access to the web may be compromised. You don’t have to be a computer expert to maintain computer security in your home or office. We’ll be discussing what steps you can take over the next few weeks.
Where do we start? Network security is a big topic, so we’ll take it one question at a time. You should start by securing your personal information online. Visit StaySafeOnline.org for excellent resources on how to increase your personal security profile.
