The Hawai‘i State Public Library System, in partnership with the (ISC)2 Hawai‘i Chapter and the Hawai‘i Department of Defense Office of Homeland Security, will be offering “Safe and Secure” cyber safety awareness programs at various public libraries throughout the month of October.

Cybersecurity professionals will discuss malware protection, passwords, wifi usage, online shopping and banking, scams, safe email habits, phishing, data backup and social media. These free one-hour programs will include a question & answer session. Teens, college students and adults are highly encouraged to attend.

“Educating our community about cyber security issues and how to protect themselves in our technology-driven world is vital,” said State Librarian Stacey Aldrich. “The Hawai‘i StatePublic Library System is happy to be a part of this important learning opportunity.”
