October is Cyber Security Month

8 OCT, THU 10 – 11:30am the Victoria Computer Club will host a zoom meeting on Cyber Security. 

October is Cyber Security month, and we will cover

  • how cyber threats work
  • how they affect you
  • how we can protect ourselves
  • how we can work together against these threats.

The zoom meeting link was sent Sept 30th in an email to members from events@victoriacomputerclub.org .  New members will be sent the link.

Nav Bassi  gave an excellent presentation last year that is well worth reviewing:

Also, the Government of Canada has a website “Get Cyber Safe” at https://www.getcybersafe.gc.ca/en/csam-2020-theme-page

Password managers are key to your online security,  and two factor authentication is key too.   A basic understanding of encryption helps.
