Cyber Threats: Learn How to Protect Yourself at Free NCC Talk

NCC will offer a free March 7 program on how individuals can protect themselves from cyber security threats

Northampton Community College will host a program on cyber security on Thursday, March 7, at 11 a.m. in Room 220 of the College Center at 3835 Green Pond Road in Bethlehem. 

The program is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s national Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign, “Stop.Think.Connect.” It will focus on how individuals and entire communities can protect themselves against growing cyber threats. 

The session will include remarks from two cyber security experts and will cover both general and technical aspects of cyber security.  One of the presenters will be Kristina Dorville, a graduate of Liberty High School who now works for the Department of Homeland Security.

The program will be free and open to the public as well as to students, faculty and staff.

This is quite interesting. The program is part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s national Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign? I suggest anyone do a Google search for "Department of Homeland Security spying on". You may see the hypocrisy in the Department's efforts to protect computer users with this talk. Oxymoron, anyone?

Rule of thumb...Report all scams or criminal activity and anything thought to be possible Malware to www.IC3.gov - this is the Internet Crimes Division of the FBI..Also, www.FTC.gov or www.FTCComplaintAssistant.gov to make complaints on companies spaming via email or phishing for info or doing anything illegal or unethical within reason...Has really worked for me- since getting about 100-180 spam/scam emails a day, getting my email hacked (even with a password) and sexual content emails being sent out to all my contact list. Anyone emailing anyone- just gave them your name, and your email address- very easy to get all your info...Too many programs out there available to the public, that will give all your private personal information just with a name and an area they live in. Unless your name is "John Smith" or something very common.
