Event Description:
This is a starter session for librarians and librarian-adjacent staff (that means everyone who works in a library) who want to know more about personal and patron privacy and information security.

This class is designed for a cybersecurity and privacy beginner who fills any role in your library.

The workshop will explain and show you:
* How do you explain to your customers (and your fellow staff) the importance of information vigilance and the power of skepticism?
* Is there a difference between information privacy and data security?
* Practical (and easyish) first steps to managing personal privacy and data security.
* Why it is important to have a cybersecurity plan.

In the security and privacy journey of a thousand steps, this class will get you (and your library) moving in the right direction.
