FTC Tweets on Protecting Yourself Online

Halloween is coming up, and Cyber Security Awareness Month is coming to a close. This is a good time to read the Federal Trade Commission’s article, Halloween’s Coming: Trick or Tweet from the FTC.

The FTC has 12 Tweets to help you protect yourself, your kids, and your computer when online.

If you tweet or update your status on a social networking page, the FTC hopes you’ll post one of these short messages about keeping online goblins away from your computer.

Sincerely,

Dr. John P. McGowan
Vice Provost and Chief Information Office
