Lunch and Learn - May 2017

Cybersecurity and how you can protect yourself

Life in a connected world brings limitless possibilities: you can control everything from your sprinkler system to your ride to the airport from an app on your watch, tap your phone to pay for dinner, or stream enough TV to keep your curled up on the couch for the next year. But what do you need to consider to protect yourself and your accounts in this online world? This session will cover the emerging trends in the area of cybersecurity such as ransomware, phishing, and Internet-connected appliances and offer practical advice on how you can protect yourself online.
