New Video Available

Online Security Videos from AUSOM presentation by Michael McKinnon are available here.
Thanks to the efforts of Chris MacQuillen (Filming), Ivan Radywonik (Post Production) and Doug Rutter (Webmaster) there are 3 videos available:

  • Ransomware,
  • Passwords, and
  • Social Media.

Some comments from members who have seen these Videos and taken the time to record their thoughts on FirstClass include:
“I thought I knew most of the traps. No. After watching these 3 videos I feel a lot more informed. Especially the cunning ways one can be fooled by innocent things on the internet such as puzzles which ask you a heap of really tough questions, and then flatter you by telling you you’re pretty clever. The 3 videos are short and easy to follow. As a person who doesn’t attend meetings, I found the videos well worth watching.”
and
“It has become difficult for me to attend meetings, so I do hope it will be possible to record presentations in future. Very much appreciated.”

Thanks also go to Judy Young for providing written notes from the presentation. These are available in AUSOM News, August 2017.
