Event Details
Presented with The Jewish Genealogical Society of Los Angeles Computers and the Internet are vital tools in our genealogical research. But, whenever we venture onto the Internet we put ourselves at risk. Viruses, worms, ransomware, Trojan horses and other forms of malware can infect our computers. Phishing, social engineering and hacking can reveal data about us which may then find its way onto the dark net to be sold to criminals. This lecture explains the various forms of malware (MALicious softWARE) that puts us at risk. It discusses ways criminals can get key information about us which can put out privacy and even assets at risk. And, it reviews the actions you can take to minimize the risk and respond to situations when you have been infected or your data has been hacked. The speaker has been an information technology (IT) professional for more than 40 years, has managed security for two multi-billion dollar organizations, has taught IT security courses at the university level and writes a monthly column on Practicing Safe Computing.
