Compusecuraphobia – The Fear of HOPING Your Computer is Secure - Course Technology Computing Conference
Presenter: Andrew Pond, Palm Beach State College
“Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't after you”. Ever pause just a moment before clicking past that security warning about an unsafe email? What about installation instructions that explicitly state to turn off your firewall and virus protection? I think, well that can't be right… hmmm. Gain an understanding of which security essentials should be introduced to students. This session will cover best practices that keep your Windows 8 computer safe and survey some of the threats that are directed toward the corporate world. Be prepared for the next tech trivia challenge, when the category covers SSL, IPSEC, Spoofing, Encryption, and more. Between the pop-up alerts on your computer to paranoia from the news, each of us should be thankful that we get through the day without having our identity stolen and our computer destroyed. The TSA thinks we are all safer if we take or shoes off while traveling. Really? Let us not take a similar approach with our own computer security.
