Wednesday, October 21 - Today's Announcements

Good Morning, Today is Wednesday, October 21 and here are today's announcements:

Today is a LATE START Day, All Classes periods 1-6 starting at 10:15 AM.

Yesterday's question, is related to internet safety.
"What is your favorite pet's name" Why isn't this a good question to ask people? While there is not a wrong answer the answer we were looking for is related to a network hacking term called "phishing" Phishing is the fraudulent attempt to obtain sensitive information or data, such as usernames, passwords and credit card details, by disguising oneself as a trustworthy entity in an electronic communication. One of the most used password recovery questions is? "What is the name of your first pet?" Other password recovery questions to be mindful of include:
What is your mother's maiden name?
What was your first car?
What elementary school did you attend?
What is the name of the town where you were born?

One way of working around phishing traps is to use password recovery answers based upon a famous person you can remember. Or make up crazy imaginary names for these questions.

Reminder 1st Quarter ends on Friday, October 30th. Don't forget to submit your classwork. CHECK PowerSchool NOW to see if you have any missing assignments.

Do not forget to ask questions. Remember to ask questions if you do not quite understand something. Start with someone from your class and then if you still do not understand ask your teacher.

Have a GREAT day! Today we learn, tomorrow we lead!
