Raise your hand if you shop online?
How about banking – do you do any part of that online, too?
What about Facebook quizzes? Do you ever succumb to the temptation to answer a few questions in exchange for a fun profile or image of yourself thirty years from now?
If you said “yes” to any of the questions above (and let’s face it, there probably aren’t many people left who don’t carry out part of their financial life online, or provide personal information in seemingly innocuous games), then it’s essential that you know how to protect yourself.
Why? Because identity and financial theft are very real.
Think you’re immune from these serious issues? Then you’ll want to pay attention when we share the many stories from the last year alone about people losing tens of thousands of dollars to hackers, not to mention the chaos created as a result of identity theft.
Everyone knows that protection starts with a good password, but what does that mean? And how many passwords should you have? Should they all be different? How do you remember them all? Where can you safely store that information?
What about all the cool money-management apps on the market – are they safe to use? If not, why not and what would make them better?
At the next Women’s Money Group meetup on October 29th, we going to talk about online security for yourself and your money. (It turns out they’re one and the same when it comes to security.)
My guest will be IT-specialist Mark Levison. Mark has spent the last thirty years working in the field of IT, first as a developer and latterly as a consultant.
He is obsessed with online security, which leads him to constantly scour the latest news and tech literature for ways to stay safe online.
We ask you to bring your laptop for this meeting. Under Mark’s guidance, you will set up a first-order mechanism to protect yourself online. Google has declared that this one strategy eliminates more than 90% of issues. In one, single step!
Join us in person, or from the comfort of your own home via live-stream, to hear Mark share this and other key steps to protect yourself online.
If you’re concerned or embarrassed about the thought of having to disclose personal information, you can rest easy. This is a judgment-free, safe zone where you participate only if you choose to. If you’d prefer to watch quietly and absorb the discussions, that’s perfectly fine.
