Lecture Free and Open to the Public Wednesday, Nov. 7

(COLUMBIA, Tenn. - Oct. 29, 2012) - - - Every time you click, invent a password or move in cyberspace, you leave a trail. Where there is a trail, there is a security risk. "Cyber Security: If You Think You're Aware - You're in for a Scare" is the topic for Columbia State's upcoming Science, Technology, Engineering and Math lecture hosted by Daniel Devers, assistant professor of computer information systems. The lecture will be Wednesday, Nov. 7 at 3:30 p.m. in the Ledbetter Auditorium.
Computer security and account integrity is of a growing concern. Casual computer users who are paying bills or surfing the net and businesses involved with everyday transactions are concerned about keeping overall security which often begins with logins and passwords. The lecture will explore some practical steps people can take to help reduce their exposed data and information.
The lecture is free and open to the public as a part of the STEM department's annual lecture series. The Ledbetter Auditorium is in the Frank G. Clement building on the Columbia campus at 1665 Hampshire Pike.
