The blog was introduced as part of the Indiana Cyber Hub, launched last year to highlight expert advice on cybersecurity trends, as well as to promote tips and cyberhygiene resources. It includes information on avoiding cyberattacks and what to do if you’re a victim of a cybercrime, among other tools.
The new blog puts additional focus on data privacy, strong passwords and tips for teleworkers. It also features insights from bloggers with backgrounds in private and public cybersecurity.
“The purpose of the blog is to help every Hoosier build on their understanding about cybersecurity, how to protect yourself from cyberattacks and more,” Indiana Office of Technology Chief Information Officer Tracy Barnes said in a news release.
In celebration of Black History Month, a three-part Indiana Cyber Blog series will also highlight the work of African-Americans in cybersecurity and information technology.
The series includes an interview with the first African-American woman CIO of NASA, Linda Y. Cureton, who spoke about her 34 years of tech work. Other special guests in the future will include state and local government tech officials, cybersecurity business owners, academic advisors, national experts and more.
