IMT to Offer Free Smartphone Security Webinar Tomorrow

Open to faculty, staff and students, the free "Are You Smarter Than Your Phone?" webinar and discussion from 11 a.m.-noon tomorrow, Jan. 9, in Milne Auditorium (Kepner 2050) will help you find the right answers to questions like:

  • Do you really want everyone to know you are out alone at midnight by "checking in" at your local donut shop?
  • Do you use your phone for banking without password protecting the device? Your phone is happy to do it. What kind of sensitive information is on your phone, or can others get to via your phone?
  • Are you sure you want to post a photo to Facebook while you're on vacation and your home is empty?

If you're not thinking critically about what you do with your phone, Information Management and Technology will help you think again.
