Digital Security Impacts All Libraries

Digital Security Impacts All Libraries

Does your library or information center…

  • Have email accounts?
  • Provide access to the internet?
  • Store personal information such as addresses, birth dates, and ID numbers?

If you said yes to any of the above, your library has a stake in digital security. For example, email accounts can be hacked through malicious links or stolen passwords and used to send spam. Internet access provides opportunities for hackers to infiltrate your computer systems. And the very nature of circulation and integrated library systems requires at least some personal information to be stored.
