QC STUDENTS RECEIVE CYBER SECURITY ADVICE FROM DIGICEL BUSINESS
Information Technology Students at Queen’s College are now fully aware of the dangers and threats that exist in the cyber world, thanks to Digicel (Barbados) Ltd.
Olton outlined some of the best practices for using the internet securely
and noted that Digicel Business had recently launched numerous Managed
Security Service Solutions for business customers, which help to provide
year-round, 24-hour monitoring and support to address a variety of threats
to IT systems. He also stressed the importance of acknowledging the
countless threats and risks we are faced with while accessing the many
digital platforms we have at our disposal including sexual predators, cyber
criminals and a host of other cyber related threats.
He said, “We thought it was only fitting that we should engage the nation’s youth on cyber security, as they are among the most active users of the Internet. The session at Queen’s College covered a variety of problem areas, including the dangers of posting personal content online, protection of passwords, the importance and benefits of security software, social media privacy settings and proper disposal of old equipment including phones and computers as well as the elements of the Computer Misuse Act.”
