Every year, cybercriminals steal approximately $40 billion from vulnerable adults in the United States.
Seniors, baby-boomers and the digitally challenged have always been a prime target for Internet scams because of a perceived vulnerability.
This workshop will give you an understanding of the specific cybersecurity concerns and threats that target the senior, baby boomer and digitally challenged population. This class will give you tips, tricks and resources to help protect you and keep your personal information safe and secure on the internet.
The class is held at River Valley Community College - Lebanon Academic Center at 15 Hanover Street, Lebanon. Due to COVID, classes are kept to a minimum, socially distanced, and masks are required.
