Event description

Description

Speakers: Tom Germain, CEO Coder Scoop Inc., Stuart Budden, CEO of NivSys.

This free traveling cybersecurity workshop seeks to bring cybersecurity awareness to busnesses that use the Internet (which is all of them!)

Attendees of the previous editions said these things:

"Presentation was clear and concise; Water was easily available; Links shared to resources on vulnerabilities"

"I learned useful tips for protecting myself against online security threats."

"As always, very good quality"

You read the headlines about the latest massive hack affecting millions and sometimes a billion web users and/or credit card holders. But did you know that possibly and unwittingly your own website, router or web connected device could be part of a botnet used in attacks?

What never ceases to amaze is how many businesses and individuals fail to protect themselves from the hordes of hackers working in a multi-billion dollar a year illegal industry. This workshop aims to awaken you to the many dangers as well as to offer real solutions to defending yourself and your business from what could be a disastrous breach of security.

Topics include:

* Profile of a "black hat" hacker and what they target
* Types of attacks and how they're achieved
* Skimmers, shimmers, mini spy cameras
* Social engineering: what is it?
* Sources of timely security alerts
* Basic prevention
* Penetration testing (have I been hacked?)
* Web site and web server security
* Desktop and Mobile security
* Anti-virus products comparisons

Truthfully, everybody who connects to the Internet should know this stuff, so come on over, and become a savvy, secure Internet user!

Attendees will receive a certificate of completion.
