County College of Morris holds program on identity theft

RANDOLPH The County College of Morris Department of Information Technologies held a seminar on how individuals can protect themselves against identity theft on Tuesday, January 24.

The seminar was free and open to the public and was a part of the national Data Privacy Day.

Seminar attendees will learn how to keep their personal information safe and protected in an interconnected world. With all the different ways people connect today, it is imperative to know where to find and how to check privacy settings to ensure that personal data is safe and secure.

This seminar was part of the “Stop. Think. Connect.” campaign, a national public awareness effort to convey that cyber security is a shared responsibility and each person has a part in keeping the Internet safe.

As part of that effort, the Center for Cyber Security at the county college hosted this event to help educate students, faculty, staff and the public on data privacy issues.

The County College of Morris is a leader in cyber security education in New Jersey and is the only community college in the state recognized as a certifying institution by the National Security Agency’s Committee on National Security Standards.
