Beebe Healthcare to Offer Two Cybersecurity Classes

Beebe Healthcare’s IT Security department has teamed up with two public libraries to present tips on cybersecurity for the community.

As part of Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the classes will take place from 1-3 p.m. on Oct. 28 at the Rehoboth Beach Public Library and Oct. 31 at the Lewes Public Library.

Attendees can expect to learn tips about:

  • Leading a lifestyle of security awareness
  • How to identify and react to phishing emails
  • Critical impacts of data breaches on the industry, home, and communities
  • How to identify and respond if your information has been leaked
  • Tools you can take back home and educate your community.

The event is free and open to the public.

“As a part of celebrating and advocating security awareness not only at work, but at home, school, and beyond, we are conducting a cybersecurity awareness class pilot for all that are interested in protecting the families and communities from online malicious actors,” said Rob Bentley, IT Security Manager, Beebe Healthcare.
