Luma Learning Strategies in the Transportation Industry

Technology has made our lives easier, faster, better and more fun. However, even though technology has improved our lives we need to learn how to protect ourselves. It is crucial that we use passwords that are difficult for hackers as well as ensuring we aren’t opening any emails or documents that could cause harm to our computers or worse cause our identity to be stolen. This Learning Lesson will cover different ways to protect yourself while using technology. It is a hands-on lesson where users are shown a tool for helping to remember passwords.
