More to come

In the coming weeks, we’ll share a variety of resources to help you outsmart cyber threats and protect you, your family, and K-State from online attacks. We encourage you to read and share the information with your colleagues, friends, and family.  When everyone takes proactive steps to secure their connected devices, personal and business accounts, and data, we all benefit from a safer and more secure digital world.

When it comes to cybersecurity, knowledge is power. Join us this October in the fight against cybercrime.
