Making a Difference During Cyber Security Awareness Month
October was Cyber Security Awareness Month. Rochester RHIO and HealthVantics Information Security Officer Eric Bielski taught 3rd - 8th graders how to stay safe online and spot cyberbullying on the Internet during their #BeNicer campaign at St Francis de Sales - St Stephen School in Geneva. In return, they sent these adorable thank you cards.

Eric also taught Internet safety to a Girl Scout Troop earlier that same week.
