Week one of National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Week one of National Cyber Security Awareness Month aims to raise online safety awareness among all citizens and reinforce the simple measures everyone can take to be more secure online.

Help create a safer cyber environment by taking the following steps:
      –       Set strong passwords, and don’t share them with anyone.
      –       Keep your operating system, browser, and other critical software optimized and secure by installing updates.
      –       Maintain an open dialogue with your family, friends, and community about Internet safety.
      –       Limit the amount of personal information you post online, and use privacy settings.
      –       Be cautious about what you receive or read online – if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.

Actions you can take to promote cyber security awareness:
      –       Distribute Cyber Security Awareness Month materials (posters, calendars) available at  http://www.dhses.ny.gov/ocs/awareness-training-events/events/2013/<http://www.dhses.ny.gov/ocs/awareness-training-events/events/2013/>

"Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense by Dr. Gene Kopelson" presentation at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center

Published on Feb 24, 2017

As Ronald Reagan traveled across the United States campaigning for the highest office in the land, the Governor of California possessed an ace in his hand unmatched by his opponents: the ear and advice of former president Dwight D. Eisenhower. Reagan was in constant contact with Ike, following his advice at every turn and going so far as to base his entire 1966 campaign on his mentor’s own successful run years before. Eisenhower’s astute view of internal Washington politics, foreign affairs, military matters, and the swirling pool of primary rivals, provided his protégé the fuel he needed to learn, and eventually win, the war of words. In his latest book, Reagan’s 1968 Dress Rehearsal: Ike, RFK, and Reagan’s Emergence as a World Statesman, Dr. Gene Kopelson outlines the story of Reagan’s first presidential bid with an in-depth look behind the scenes. On Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, Dr. Kopelson gave a lecture titled, “Ike and Dutch: Mentor, Protégé, and Common Sense,” to delve deeper into the relationship between Reagan and his mentor and how it not only shaped Reagan’s future campaigns, but his presidency, as well.

In his lecture at the USAHEC, Dr. Kopelson uses never-before-tapped audio clips, interviews with the original 1968 campaign staff, Eisenhower’s personal diary, and material straight from personal correspondence to show how Eisenhower influenced Reagan’s politics and eventually, his far-reaching presidential policies. From Reagan’s hawkish views on Vietnam to his perspective on the Arab-Israeli situation, his groundbreaking steps with Gorbachev and the Soviets to nuclear defense, Eisenhower and Reagan had a close and personal relationship which changed America’s future.
