Join #misec Lansing for a talk on keeping your elders safe online
Talk Title: Keeping Your Elders Safe Online
Speaker: Brian Martinez
About the Talk: Our parents and other aging loved ones have either been online for some time now or have largely avoided it. Regardless, they came up in a time where internet access was not ubiquitous and services such as paying bills, buying groceries, moving finances, and even dating were not just one click away – whether by phone or computer. As our elders begin to retire and have more time on their hands and/or they simply decide to take the leap into new technology, they may inadvertently find themselves in a tangled web of scams and fraud.
Directions: Parking is available on the road just to the south of Baker Hall or in the parking lot to the east of the building. We meet in room 555. Take the elevator in the southeast corner of the building to the fifth floor and turn left. Follow the noise; we’re pretty close to the elevator.
