Monthly workshops will return in September

Event Date: 
Tuesday, September 15, 2020 - 11:00am

UMRA’s monthly Living Well workshops will continue in September with a presentation on internet security previously scheduled for March 11. 

September workshop: Protecting your online presence
Are you concerned about the safety of all your digital data? If not, you should be. The world is awash with people who want your data and want to do bad things with it.

UMRA’s September 15 workshop will provide an overview of cyber threats and best practices for protecting ourselves from them. We will learn how to guard against fraudulent email scams, malware, ransomware and malicious websites; what two-factor authentication is; how to create strong passwords and manage passwords; and where to find additional resources online.

Jenny Blaine, our workshop presenter, is a security analyst at University Information Security. She has been working in information security for more than 11 years. She is certified in Information Security, Windows Memory Forensics, and Security Incident Handling, and is a member of the University's security incident response team. 

Using tools for e-discovery, log analysis, and memory forensics, Blaine works with law enforcement, the Office of Internal Audit, and the Office of the General Counsel on both internal and external cyber investigations at the University. 

Join us for what promises to be an eye-opening and valuable workshop starting at 11 a.m. The invitation for this presentation via Zoom webinar will be emailed to UMRA members in mid-August.
