Learn How You Can Stay Safe Online: Stop. Think. Connect.

The Santa Cruz Public Library System, a network of 10 neighborhood library branches throughout Santa Cruz County, has announced a series of cybersecurity workshops to be held at branch libraries throughout the County during National Cybersecurity Awareness Month this October.

Whether you are a business owner, a parent, a child, a teacher, a student, or a senior, YOU can have an impact on cybersecurity. By practicing strong and safe online habits, you can better protect your identity and the networks you use at home, at work, and anywhere you log on. Library Director Susan Nemitz says, “Cybersecurity awareness month is such an important time. With recent cyberthreats in the news, it will be important for new technology users and advanced users alike to review and learn the most effective practices for safe online behavior.”

Join Library IT expert Lynne Sansevero in one of several cybersecurity workshops designed to help you connect online safely. These workshops are a partnership between the national STOP THINK CONNECT initiative and the Santa Cruz Public Libraries. Our current set of classes are specifically tailored for Older Community Members, Business Owners, Kids, Teens, and their parents.
