Device Security

WorkshopsAre you protecting yourself from device theft, scams, hacking and malware?

There are non-stop malicious attempts to steal your money and your account credentials.  In 2020, the FCC processed 4.7 million reports of identity theft and fraud. The strategies and technologies used by cyber-criminals are innovative, adaptive, deceptive and they are increasing.  Fortunately, there are ways to improve your safety!

In our workshop Tech Talks: Device and Account Security (Apple & Android) we discuss the tactics used to trick people into giving away access to their accounts and devices.  We share examples of imposter scams, phishing attempts and other digital security threats.  We review the best practices and strategies for staying safe when using your mobile device online. Check our the library's virtual calendar to view and register for upcoming events.
