Friends University hosts Cyber Hygiene in a COVID World virtual event

Staying home and staying in means more time online. Are you cyber safe? Friends University Assistant Professor of Cyber Security, Jonathan Lanning will present Cyber Hygiene in a COVID World, a virtual Zoom event on Friday, May 1 at 1 p.m. The event will highlight how the changes in distancing and social norms are impacting the security of people and organizations now as well as how things may change as we continue to change our social behaviors in response to COVID-19.

“People are working from home, kids are schooling from home, and there is streaming and downloading happening every day,” said Jonathan Lanning, assistant professor of cyber security at Friends University. “We want to help people lower their risk of online threats and inform them what to be aware of to keep their cyber world safe.”

Friends University offers an award-winning cyber security program that gives students the opportunity to experience real-time, hands-on training in the state-of-the-art INTRUST Bank Cyber Security Laboratory.
