Privacy and Security
August 16, 2023 , 10:30 am – 12:00 pm PDT
This workshop gives participants a deeper understanding of today’s internet security issues including frauds, scams, and security breaches, as opposed to the old days of “viruses.” Participants will also learn about the fundamentals on how to manage their passwords, how to spot suspicious activities, and how to define their own privacy in today’s digital world. For example, deciding to on the trade-offs between safety and privacy.
Part B is a practicum workshop where participants and instructors can delve deeper into challenges they encountered using their own devices and in their lives related to the workshop Part A. Participants will share what they learned from the “homework” assigned in Part A.
We’re excited to offer a new series Technology Workshops in collaboration with the digital coaching company AsKevin. Workshops are offered as a two-week mini-series. Part A is information and Part B is a hand-on lab, where AsKevin staff and volunteers will be available to help students, using their own devices, delve deeper into what they learned the previous week. You must attend Part A to participate in Part B.
