We’ve heard a lot about data breaches and how organizations have suffered, prevented, responded, and reacted to online security threats. This session will focus on what librarians can do to protect themselves and their institutions, as well as how librarians have responded when their organizations have been attacked. Topics will include security standards, VPNs, security beyond passwords, two-tier authentication, privacy settings, pros and cons of metadata, phishing, social engineering, and other online security issues. Participants will also learn how to teach users about online safety, which is everyone’s responsibility.
