Description

Have you been a victim of hacking? Have you had your personal data stolen? Join us for an outstanding presentation and discussion with information security expert Yan Kravchenko, who will share practical tips on how to keep your data secure and debunk the myths about hacking.

Computers have become an indispensable part of our lives. Over the years we became enthralled with social media, sharing photos and videos, and interacting with friends and family using a wide range of texting and messaging applications. Every day we become more and more dependent on the Internet for doing all aspects of business, including financial transactions, paying bills, filing taxes, and just about every other aspect of the day-to-day household chores. While use of computers and the Internet has made our lives a lot easier and more interesting, they have also exposed us to criminals around the world and hardly a week goes by without some new headlines dealing with the latest hack or a data breach.

In this session, we will cover a number of topics dealing with online safety:
• How to keep your computer virus free
• Best ways of preventing identity theft
• Ways to identify hacking attacks
• How to talk to kids about online safety
• Ways of preventing hackers from hacking into your online accounts

We will help you sort fact from fiction, myth from reality, and silly rumors from real online security defenses. You will walk away armed with enough information to help protect yourself and your family from hackers and most common online threats.

GUEST SPEAKER: Yan Kravchenko is an information security expert with over 20 years of experience in defending companies of all sizes against computer hackers. Yan has spoken at several local, regional, and international conferences on many different subjects related to information security, and is a widely-recognized thought-leader in this industry.
