Two Security Learn IT @ Lunch Sessions in October – Join us!

October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month. Join us as Duke’s IT Security Office presents two Learn IT @ Lunch Sessions. Details below. Find out more about upcoming IT security events at Duke on the IT Security Office Website.

Mobile Apps: The good, the bad and the ugly…
Presenter: Artem Kazantsev, Sr. Security Analyst – IT Security Office
Date: Wednesday, October 10
Time: noon – 1:00 p.m.
Location:  RENCI Conference Room – OIT Telecommunications Building

No matter which camp you belong to: iPhone, Android, MS Phone or (sigh) Blackberry, one thing is clear:   mobile devices are here to stay and propagate. With the convenience of having a smart companion almost every hour of the day comes a challenge to keep your personal information private, your online purchasing  secure, your geographic location known only to your friends. Software markets are full of apps that claim to help you to not only exterminate pesky pigs, but secure your device in the process. Should we trust them? Which apps are really good, which are harmful? Do I need a special app to secure my device, or good old screen lock  is good enough? We will do our best to answer these questions. We also encourage everyone to bring your favorite security app for the open forum portion of the show.

Keeping Track of Your Passwords
Presenter: Richard Biever, Chief Information Security Officer
 & Director, Identity Management
Date: Wednesday, October 24
Time: noon – 1:00 p.m.
Location:  RENCI Conference Room – OIT Telecommunications Building

Too many times we have seen stories about our passwords being compromised: from Yahoo exposing 450,000 passwords, to having to reset a Zappo’s password, to hearing about a friend or colleague who “clicked on a link” and gave their Gmail password to someone they shouldn’t have.  Unfortunately, a large number of people tend to re-use their passwords so that the password that gets them into Duke systems or applications also gets them into Facebook, their bank account, and their personal email account.  In this session, we will briefly touch on why password security still matters, and then cover options available to manage multiple passwords in a safe and secure manner.
