About Security Matters

Security Matters is a service of the Center for Applied Cybersecurity Research (CACR) at Indiana University and WFIU and is funded by a generous grant from the Lilly Endowment, Inc. The series – initially 12 episodes – will address specific security threats or vulnerabilities through brief audio segments on WFIU along with simple how-to video segments at securitymatters.iu.edu. The 3-5 minute video segments will provide tips and tutorials for keeping yourself safe both online and off. CACR will also provide tips and information via facebook and twitter. Be sure to like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter for updates, tips, and news.
