We live in an increasingly digital world. Cars without drivers. Airplanes without pilots. Newspapers without paper. The binding factor is always people, and each of us controls what is in front of us and how we respond each day.

The internet is a huge part of our lives at work and at home, and no one is immune to cyber threats. Constantly being connected means increased risks to privacy and security every single day. It is everyone's responsibility to learn how to behave safely and responsibly online - and when we do, we make the internet safer and more secure for everyone.

Want to be a cyber-champion now?

One of the first, and easiest things, you can do is change your password! Just go to and click on "reset password". A strong password is your first line of defense when protecting your information.

Also, you are now encouraged to enroll in the College's Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) program. Utilizing 2FA through DUO will protect your MC accounts. What is 2FA? Just like online banking, your Gmail account, Facebook, or LinkedIn, a second-factor authentication is required to access your accounts. This second level of verification will help decrease account compromises and identity theft, provide real-time alerts for password protection, and allows you to use your smartphone, cell phone, tablet, or landline phone to easily confirm your login requests. Visit to enroll.

Want to know more?

All this month, we will be talking about how to be aware of the many threats to your online security and the proactive steps you can take to avoid those threats. Look for posts to the College's Twitter and Facebook pages, Inside MC Online articles, and be sure to visit the IT Security website for more information ( come visit the IT Security Team at the Compliance Fair October 2 - 5!

Stop. Think. Connect. Be a cyber-champion!
