Computer Security Workshops for Retirees

Are you worried about your online security? Do you need help with protecting your computer and other devices? Then these workshops are for you!

Wednesday, November 18
Bldg B, Room 015
Marietta campus

Thursday, November 19
KSU Center, Room 226
Kennesaw campus

The security of our computers and other electronic devices is an increasing concern, and one that’s hard to manage when we are not on campus. Come to either session (they are the same, just offered on both campuses) and learn from KSU ITS Security Office trainer Chris Dehner how to maintain your online security. The topics covered can be applied to the computers you use at home as well as the computers you use on the KSU campus.

Topics include:

* Keeping your computer up-to-date
* Creating backups
* Anti-malware products
* Internet scams
* Safe wireless usage

Please R.S.V.P. to or call 470-578-7984 to let us know you are coming. Classes are limited to 20 participants.
