Cybersecurity for You Summer Activities Released

Happy summer! The beginning of the hotter months heralds the arrival of new activities to the Cybersecurity for You (C4U) awareness platform, and with them, a renewed opportunity to improve cybersecurity skills and earn points towards digital rewards.  

The nice weather may prompt you to conduct a little cleaning, sweeping away the remnants of winter. But as you sort through the debris and clean out storage, you can’t forget to include devices in your to-do list. With this clearing spirit in mind, C4U’s newest activities offer actionable steps to unclutter your digital life and protect what is important. With these newly released activities, you will be able to:  

  • Protect data on mobile devices from theft or damage  

  • Figure out which backup method is right for your devices 

  • Employ backup techniques to recover from ransomware  

  • Simplify your digital life with password tools available as C4U rewards  

C4U is The Ohio State University’s cybersecurity awareness platform, managed by your colleagues in the Office of Technology and Digital Innovation. The awareness platform offers learning activities and actionable techniques to help you live a safer digital life. Open to all university staff, C4U can be accessed through any mobile device, laptop and/or desktop computer. New activities are released quarterly, and each activity completed gets you one step closer to obtaining a variety of digital rewards.
