The Importance of Protecting Your Information Online

Information security is a critical aspect to maintain for both individuals and businesses, especially in the LGBTQ community. While the recently introduced regulations are promoting equality in more parts of the country, the dangers faced by our businesses and fellow community members online are still very real. Those taking an online masters in law degree from universities like Champlain College are now studying more about information security and its impact on businesses in particular.

There are several ways to protect your information online. You can look for an SSL certificate – marked with a padlock icon right next to the address bar of your browser – before entering any personal information. Cloud solutions used to store personal and business information must also be secured properly. More importantly, know your rights when it comes to information security online.

More information on the matter can be found on the Protecting Your Information in the Digital Age infographic by Champlain College.
