OSWEGO, N.Y. — October is National Cyber Security Awareness Month. SUNY Oswego’s Computer Technology Service office offers tips on ways to keep your online identity safe. The CTS office can also assist students, faculty and staff with any online concerns they may have.
CTS urges students and faculty to avoid sharing any important information with individuals. SUNY Oswego works around the clock to ensure that spam emails and links are stopped before they reach the community.
“You really need to be vigilant all the time, and I would say the fishers have gotten much better in terms of how they go and work to get your information,” said Sean Moriarty Chief Technology Officer at SUNY Oswego. “They are really well-crafted emails that tug your heartstrings and they know how to send them from people who appear that you would trust but it’s not really them sending it.”
There are multiple websites available to the campus community, as well as the public, that will help you with ways to prevent getting hacked. Government websites are the most accurate when it comes to information on this topic.
If students, faculty or staff have any concerns or questions they can contact CTS at 315-312-3456 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
