Brooklyn Park University Conducts an Awareness Program on Maintaining Cyber Security through Education
Brooklyn Park University (BPU) took the initiative to guide people in taking proactive measures, before they become a victim to cyber crimes. The criminal minds have chosen the medium of Internet to fool people, rob them and collect their valuable information via different means. Not only government and corporate organizations but even citizens are not safe from cyber threats.
Jose F. Smith, the Director of Brooklyn Park University said: “Being an online university, it is our primary concern to maintain cyber security, so that the information of our students remains protected. Therefore, we have decided to conduct this program, so that we can also assist the public in understanding how they can keep themselves safe from various cyber threats and from online malicious activities.”
During the awareness program, Brooklyn Park University’s research assistant highlighted: “People are being trapped online via phishing messages; personal information is being confiscated by social networking sites, people are becoming a victim of fraud through shopping cart pop ups and banking websites, also, websites that Google search engine displays often contain malware, which are downloaded on the user’s system.”
Brooklyn Park University encourages other universities, schools and colleges to spread awareness in their capacity as educators about cyber security. The Higher Education Information Security council appreciated the university’s effort for the program. A number of top corporate organizations attended the awareness program and contributed their part by sharing their worse experiences as well as solutions to let others know what proactive measures they need to take and what to do if caught by cyber criminals.
Brooklyn Park University recommends that students, professionals and others need to remain up-to-date on latest threats, integrate modern technologies and software to protect their systems and incorporate safe practices. In this fast-paced world of technology, a large number of people are dependent on Internet and it is mandatory to make its use smartly to remain protected from various cyber threats.
