Over on LISNews, Blake has a series of posts on IT security in libraries, and it's absolutely worth checking out. So far there are five parts:
- IT Security For Libraries
- Practical Tips For Online Privacy
- Practical Advice On Choosing Good Passwords
- Staying Safe Online
- 20 Common Security Myths
It's good for library staff to know and abide by this information, but it is also very useful material for building a online safety program for the public.
Another of my favorite security-related posts is the Email Scam Competency Test, to see if you can tell legitimate email messages from scams. At the end of the test, click the "why" links to see the clues for telling the difference.
