TECH TALK – SECURITY by Mike Maisello, 3 Sessions
"If you spend any amount of time online browsing the internet, emailing, shopping or performing financial transactions you should take steps to mitigate the possibility of someone stealing your personal information. This course will discuss ways to keep safe while performing tasks online. Some of the topics that will be discussed are vishing and phishing, fake or spoofing websites, ransom ware and more. Mitigation/protection strategies will be presented and discussed: Strong passwords, VPN's, Windows 10 security settings, virus and firewall protection browser security and more. Cell phone security will be presented. Bring your questions and comments I have found that students learn as much from listening to other students as they do from listening to me.
There will be an optional third class session where students can talk about their favorite online application or piece of technology they use. During that optional session students can ask any technology question they may have about any topic everything is fair game.
So, join the class and learn how to keep your online experience safer and more secure."
