Presented by Patrick Smyth, Web Analyst and Digital Fellow

With high-profile data breaches occurring on a regular basis nowadays, computer security seems increasingly elusive. But familiarity with a core set of concepts and techniques can greatly improve your ability to protect yourself online. This presentation explored these core concepts, from examining common misconceptions about security to useful tools and practices for defensive computing, applicable regardless of operating system.

This outline of the Computer Security presentation (implemented using Reveal.js, a presentation framework that’s an alternative to Powerpoint) offers an overview of the valuable advice you missed if you weren’t at this meeting. When you attend NYACC meetings and become a member, you can be informed on the latest contemporary issues, participate in interesting Question and Answer sessions, and automatically receive supplemental materials whenever available.

Presented by Alfred Poor, Ph.D., Editor of “Health Tech Insider,” a website and newsletter that covers the health and medical applications of wearable technology.

The vast majority of seniors want to remain in their homes instead of moving to managed settings, but they are concerned about safety. Technology can help. In this presentation, wearable technology expert Alfred Poor, PhD, provides a practical overview of aging-in-place devices, remote medicine, and other affordable systems that make it practical for seniors to remain in their own homes, maintain an independent life, and save money — with safety and peace of mind for all.

Protecting Cyber Security


Presented by the Enterprise Information Security Office (EISO).

The EISO is responsible for protecting the New York State government’s cyber security infrastructure and providing statewide coordination of policies, standards and programs relating to cyber security; they offer information and recommendations to protect consumers from falling victim to cyber crime.

This PDF presentation Cyber Safety and Responsibility for Cyber Citizens provides an excellent overview and reality check on just how serious cyber security is nowadays: the different ways your personal data can be stolen or controlled, how this information can then be misused, and how to safeguard against it.
