The Weakest Link: The "Human Factor" in a Cyberwar   NEW!

All class sessions are at Maltby Building Room 109. Software and hardware protection systems have evolved to provide comprehensive protection on our computers and in our Internet connections. But cyber-attacks continue unabated. What is the weakest link in our systems of cyber protection? You and I. The most successful cyber-attacks exploit the human element through social engineering methods like phishing, clickjacking, and baiting. Learn to recognize these methods, avoid being “engineered,” and best ways to respond to these probes. Offering CRI classes since 2011, Brian Boston wants to help you use technology to develop your interests and connect with family and friends. Though he has trained hundreds of support engineers at Microsoft and elsewhere in nearly 40 years of computer support, Brian prefers to work with end users. He educates and supports individuals and small businesses, advising on purchase, usage, system maintenance and security. 2 sessions.
