Password Manager Clinic

Registration now closed.

In case you missed our password manager clinic, click here for USask supported options and more information. Or learn more about staying cyber safe by using password managers from the Government of Canada.

Ever been frustrated by the number of passwords you have to keep track of in your daily life? At one time, you might have had only a few – some simple ones for unimportant sites, some stronger ones, and perhaps a really good one for your most important data. With all the passwords for all the IT services we access in our professional and personal lives, it can quickly become a struggle to remember them all or worse – use one password for several applications and services!  Password managers are the solution you need to ensure your passwords are strong and unique to protect your data for each IT service you use.

Secure Your Devices and Accounts

Our mobile devices contain a lot of information about us. If we’re not careful, a cyber criminal can steal this information. Learn how to keep your device — and your data — safe.

Avoid Sharing Too Much Info Online

You probably know that you should be careful sharing personal details about yourself, like your home address or phone number online. What you might not know is that sometimes seemingly innocent information, like the name of your first pet, can be used to steal your data.

Get Cyber Safe - Tips for Kids and Families

You may have grown up with some technology, but kids today are growing up right in the thick of it. Kids are surrounded by technology like touch screens and streaming services, and they seem to know everything there is to know about the latest online trends and topics (which might be why they’re better at resetting the router  than you are).
