According to the FBI’s Internet Crime and Complaint Center cybercrime has skyrocketed over 600% since the pandemic began last year. It’s been called the “golden age of cybercrime” and what you don’t know can cost you or your employer very real losses, in the tens of thousands of dollars, not to mention an embarrassing incident your friends, family and customers will remember. In this webinar we will show you free and inexpensive security tricks that you may already have access to but might not be using. We’ll also show you how some of these scammers operate so that you can beat them at their own game! Bring your computer and a friend to this free, fun and informative session!
