We are closing out the year just the way we started it: connecting people to opportunity. From connecting the U.S. Army, to connecting AT&T employees to career pipelines, or even connecting students to academic training, at its core, this is what all of us at AT&T do every day. I am so proud of what we have accomplished this year in Iowa, and as I look forward to 2018 I am excited for what is to come. But before we get to January, I want to wish all of you, your family and your friends a happy holiday season and a happy New Year!

Don't Be One of the 5%
Five percent of consumers in the U.S. text their passwords to their accounts (not a good idea) … 5% of consumers use consecutive letters or numbers for their passwords (you might as well text those passwords to the bad guys in the first place) … 5% of consumers provide their personal or financial info to an email sender without verifying who they are.
The good news is that most Americans know that these are things we should not be doing online if we want to protect ourselves. The challenge is that the crooks are getting smarter, making it harder for consumers to know what to do to protect themselves online. That’s why AT&T just launched att.com/CyberAware.
