Information Security 101 

This 3-hour workshop will provide instruction on a variety of content pertaining to information security. The first third of the class will cover a basic overview of the information security industry, an explanation of terms frequently used, an introduction to basic concepts of security principles, and identification of potential threats. The second third of the workshop will dig a little deeper into how to identify and mitigate threats like phishing emails and social engineering phone calls. Gain a better understanding on how to recognize malicious intent, as well as how to get out of harm’s way. The last third of the workshop will provide practical knowledge about social media safety as well as tips about how to perform Open Source Intelligence (OSINT) searches online. Having tools to better identify potential threats and then do research fits into the library security model and will round out the workshop. You do not need to be tech savvy to participate in this talk. This is not a technical talk, it is an informational workshop. Computers are not required for class, but feel free to bring a laptop for notetaking.
