As this week was cyber security awareness week, WVUD’s Campus Voices was able to talk with Shawn Cosgrove, an IT Security Analyst at the University of Delaware. We discussed with Shawn the dangers of phishing, how citizens can prevent becoming a victim, and the relevant stories of people who have clicked before thinking.
Shawn Cosgrove, recorded live on October 19, 2017.
