The Jessie Turner Center will host a cybersecurity workshop on Thursday, Oct. 24.

As part of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the City of Fontana is offering workshops Oct. 22-24 to bring awareness to cybersecurity and to teach participants how they can help protect themselves from cyber attacks.

The workshops are on:

Attendees will learn how to create strong passphrases, how to spot and report a phishing scam, the importance of software updates, and more.

The workshops are open to all ages and do not require registration.

The cybersecurity outreach is part of a month-long awareness campaign which includes tips to be safe and secure online, along with weekly quizzes to test cybersecurity knowledge via the city’s social media accounts. There is currently a book display at the Lewis Library and Technology Center in Fontana promoting cybersecurity safety tips and books.
