“The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do.” Ted Nelson
Last week in the first of four Better Safe Than Sorry workshops we learned the #1 security rule – Never use your CLU password for anything else. We also took a big picture view of computer security and how exploits work. If you missed the workshop you can watch the video at your own convenience. This week we start drilling down into the details of Spam and Phishing scams. You’ll learn what to look out for, how to protect yourself and what to do if you get caught in the spider’s web.
If you have questions about Cyber Security, this workshop is for you.
If you think it could never happen to you… this workshop is REALLY for you.
