Campus - and Personal - Security for the Holidays

I recommend you take a look at Linda McGlasson's post 'Tis the Season for Thieving. There is some good advice for all, both for your campus security (check out the warnings on fake bank transfers) and your and your staff's personal security (phishing, fake charity websites, etc.).

Some specific scams Linda offers highlights includes:
Holiday e-cards (loaded with nasty attachments)
Fake "new friend" emails
Unsecured public terminals (do you really want to use a password at that kiosk!?!)
Fake holiday websites (Santa really, really would not go there)

May we all have a safe and secure holiday season...but somehow I sort of doubt it.
