IT Security Tip
Avoid using open Wi-Fi networks to conduct personal business, bank or shop online. Open Wi-Fi networks at places such as airports, coffee shops and other public locations present an opportunity for attackers to intercept sensitive information that you would provide to complete an online transaction.

Accessibility Tip
Know when a PDF is appropriate: A PDF preserves a document's appearance across operating systems and devices. If this characteristic is not essential, consider using an alternate format such as HTML.
