Don’t Get Taken for a Ride on the Information Superhighway

On Thursday, March 21st, Internet scam experts Drew Macon and Andrew Norton will give a presentation on computer security. Mac users may not have to deal with viruses, but there are many other ways computer crooks are trying to separate you from your money. Phishing, email cons, fake websites, unprotected Wi-Fi, keyboard capture and weak passwords are just a few topics they’ll discuss with us. Come to this important meeting and learn how to protect yourself.

Drew Macon is Special Agent at Michigan Attorney General with more than 20 years of IT experience. Andrew Norton is an investigator for The Hanover Insurance Group. Both are former Lansing police officers. This presentation is sponsored by Ingham County Triad <www.inghamcountytriad.org>

Comm Arts Building

Interactive MSU map

If you use the first map, it’s the balloon marked with the letter “A” over on the right side (you may have to scroll the map a little). If you expand and zoom in on the map you’ll see the parking ramp just to the south where there is free parking starting at 6:00. (There are meters, but you don’t have to feed them after 6 PM.) Come in the doors closest to the parking ramp. Room 165 is on the north side of the building (far from the parking ramp). Look for the LAMALUG signs.
