Cybersecurity Awareness Month

October is dedicated to raising awareness about digital responsibility and security. It reminds us to stay safe online by practicing basic cyber hygiene, staying informed through joining cyber communities and keeping an eye out for suspicious scams and phishing. Whether at home or work, it is our responsibility to protect our information by keeping inform and secured.

Follow four key actions recommended by the CISA.gov Cybersecurity Awareness Program:

4 Things You Can Do
Throughout October, CISA and NCA will highlight key action steps that everyone should take:
Think Before You Click: Recognize and Report Phishing: If a link looks a little off, think before you click. It could be an attempt to get sensitive information or install malware.
Update Your Software: Don’t delay — If you see a software update notification, act promptly. Better yet, turn on automatic updates.
Use Strong Passwords: Use passwords that are long, unique, and randomly generated. Use password managers to generate and remember different, complex passwords for each of your accounts. A passwords manager will encrypt passwords securing them for you!
Enable Multi-Factor Authentication: You need more than a password to protect your online accounts, and enabling MFA makes you significantly less likely to get hacked.

Hiking & Local Nature

Moraine Valley Community College (MVCC) is located near beautiful forest preserves. Throughout the year, students see the seasons change through the colors of local flora, the sounds of migrating birds, and the occasional encounters with local wildlife. It is magical.

The following resources vary from beginners to must-read books. They are intended to help students and visitors experience nature near the campus and throughout Illinois. Along with the nearby forest preserves, MVCC’s campus has a vibrant Nature Study Area and Observatory, a 40-acre reconstructed tall grass prairie which is home to coyotes, great blue herons, colorful mallards, schools of bass and bluegill, hundreds of plants, and grasses. Visit the Nature Study Area and all the Forest Preserves of Cook County around the campus and Illinois!
