Ask Us Anything About Cyber Security

August 11, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Our work environment may have changed, but cyber security risks and challenges remain the same. We seem to have more to worry about now. Are you concerned about recent phishing campaigns designed to prey on our COVID-19 worries? How about the security of your Zoom meetings? Maybe the return to work that has you worried. What security protections will be provided for your health information as you return to the office or classroom?

In the spirit of easing your concerns in a friendly and approachable way, our Cyber Security panelists will answer your questions and provide reassurance about how to manage your remote work environment securely, offer suggestions for small and easy actions that will make a big impact, and provide insight into the really serious risks and what we can do about them.

We’ll talk about everything… from identifying suspicious email to creating a super strong password to using your own virtual network to thwart hackers. Bring your questions and concerns and share your experiences with our experts. They’ll make you feel empowered to work and socialize remotely… securely.

Panelists:
