About “Is cyber security really important?”

Paying attention to cyber security is more important today than it has ever been. COVID-19 has exposed many more vulnerabilities than in prior years. More of us are now working from home, many children are learning from home, and many of us have added more IoT devices to make our lives easier. These devices present their own dangers which need to be addressed.

Join presenter Bob Gostischa, the featured speaker at the October General Meeting of the Brookdale Computer User Group, starting at 6:45 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 28, via Zoom meeting, as he guides you towards secure cyber security practices.

This presentation points out the dangers and offers suggestions that will aid in keeping you secure. Using the right programs and apps can help keep you safe and secure as well as reduce your privacy exposure. Using free programs and apps whenever possible to accomplish this goal is an added bonus and this presentation includes information on many recommended free programs.

[The invitation to the meeting will be sent out by President John Stampfel via MailChimp shortly before the meeting. Don’t forget to check for any updates to your Zoom software before the meeting begins!]
