Competency: Public Access

Sub-Category: Consults appropriate sources to stay informed of emerging security
threats and the most current strategies and tools


Library staff and the public are connecting to
WIFI networks at their workplaces, in coffee shops, McDonalds, convenience
stores and many other places. Additionally, many library and consumer
services are switching to web based only access.


What you and your patrons may not know is that as
connections to the web are made via these access points, some of your
information is unknowingly being shared when you connect. 


In this informative program, learn how to protect your
data, computer and identity while using these networks. You'll also learn about
alternative Internet connections such as tethering, VPNs and hotspots. When
the program is over, you'll be ready to share this valuable information with
your patrons!
