Cyber Security Workshop

We live in a globally connected world. Our “cyber security hygiene” not only affects us, but everyone around us, as well. Compromised systems (be it mobile, desktop, or laptop computers) can infect other systems and adversely impact your co-workers. Email security, social networking, and other acts easily spread infections, affecting reputation and causing financial burden. Attend this session to better understand what is at risk and what measures to deploy to protect yourself.
