CYBER SECURITY TIP OF THE DAY: October is Cyber Security Awareness Month. For more cyber security awareness tips and information, go to SANS Security Awareness Tip of the Day. Today's tip:

  • Running antivirus software does not slow your computer down nearly as much as a virus does.
  • Backing up your data may seem like a waste of time - er, until you spill coffee on your laptop.
