City of Pocatello Partners with DHS for Cyber Security Awareness Month


The City of Pocatello is joining with the Department of Homeland Security and other communities around the nation for Cyber Security Awareness Month. During October, the City’s Information Technology Department will be part of an effort to educate and engage the public on cybersecurity issues facing citizens. “So much of our lives are taking place online,” said Chris Sorensen, Chief Information Officer. “From shopping to banking, communicating with loved ones and more, while convenient to do online, they also have the potential for intrusion by those who could do us personal and financial harm.” Throughout the month, the City will be sharing tips, ideas, and tools through its social media pages to help residents protect their life online. A few of those tips are included below: - Set strong passwords, and don’t share them with anyone.

- Keep your operating system, browser, and other critical software optimized and secure by installing updates.

- Maintain an open dialogue with your family, friends, and community about Internet safety.

- Limit the amount of personal information you post online, and use privacy settings.

- Be cautious about what you receive or read online; if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

For more on what you can do to protect yourself online, like the City of Pocatello Information Technology Department’s Facebook page.
