Subject: Staying Safe Online:  Antivirus is not enough
Speaker: Alan Baker

Long ago, an antivirus program on your computer was sufficient to maintain your security and privacy on the internet.  Today, criminals are constantly probing your computer, your router, your phone, your smart speaker, your security camera, your thermostat, and your doorbell.  Learn how these attacks work and how to block them. Do you have a question about security and privacy that you'd like answered in the presentation?  Send your question to alanwbaker@yahoo.com.
