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

Routine Maintenance

OIT performs routine maintenance on servers and systems every Sunday from 8 a.m. to noon. Many IT services may be offline intermittently during this time. Network access and computing resources availability (Banner, E-Learning, Exchange server, etc.) may also be affected. Since this is a low-usage period, fewer UA customers will be impacted. For questions, contact the IT Service Desk at (205) 348-5555 or itsd@ua.edu.
