Cybersecurity is the method of protecting and recovering networks, devices, and programs from any type of cyberattacks.  Cyberattacks are a growing threat to the college, faculty, staff, and students. They are typically designed to access or destroy sensitive data or extort money.

It’s important to have a strong cybersecurity system that has multiple layers of protection spread across computers, devices, networks, and programs. But a strong cybersecurity system doesn’t rely solely on cyber defense technology; it also relies on people making smart cyber defense choices.
