Come learn about how to better secure yourself in the digital and cyber age. We will be discussing various security topics from phishing to social engineering to ransomware. We will discuss what to do when you believe you may be compromised and also relay tips on how to prevent and protect yourself from becoming a victim. Any questions you may have are welcome as well.
