The cyberthreat landscape has expanded across all sectors of business and industry and has now grown to include libraries. While most libraries have IT measures in place to ensure cybersecurity it is oftentimes not enough to combat today’s evolving cyberattacks.  What can you do to help your library fight this very real threat?  Learn how to spot phishing attempts like a hacker in this interactive webinar.  Educate yourself about password management, social engineering, computer security, and protecting the data you’re handling.
