WHAT IS MINDFULNESS?
Mindfulness is a quality of alert, open awareness. In contrast to a multitasking mind, mindfulness is a state of mind that has the ability to pay attention in a particular way, on purpose, in the present moment.

Applying mindfulness can help protect you – and Harvard – from the very real concern of clicking impulsively on links in phishing emails. Come to understand the extent and impact of phishing and find out how to spot the signs of phishing and suspicious false emails. Participants will also learn cyber safety tips and be introduced to the basics of mindfulness. They will learn techniques to help regulate their state of mind to remain focused, creative and resilient and how to manage the distractions and intrusive threats that creep into day to day work.
