Test your cyberstrength this October

October 1, 2019

Throughout October, Duke’s IT Security Office will share tips and resources to help staff, faculty and students protect their digital security.

As part of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, Duke IT staff will present two Learn IT @ Lunch sessions and will be available at various on-campus events giving away webcam covers, carabiners and other freebies.

Duke staff, faculty and students also can take a quiz to test their cyberstrength. All Duke users who take the quiz will be entered into a drawing to win an AppleWatch.
