Peter will report on the numerous techniques scam artists use to infiltrate our digital lives – compromising or disabling our Macs, iPads, and iPhones, stealing our identities, and emptying our bank accounts.

The main focus will be on phishing attacks, as these are now the choice du jour of scammers. We’ll discuss what you can do to identify and disable potential attacks, and how to prepare so that you can correct damage if an attack gets through. During the presentation, we will examine a variety of actual phishing messages.

The best defense against scam artists is personal awareness, preparation, and maintaining attention while online.
