Equifax Security Breach: What you can do to protect yourself

As you may know, a data breach at Equifax compromised sensitive data for nearly half of all U.S. consumers — including names, social security numbers, birth dates, addresses, and the numbers of some driver's licenses. Hundreds of thousands of credit card numbers were part of the hack. Now millions of Americans could be at risk for identity theft. Bob Snow will be discussing things you can and in many cases should do to protect yourself.

Please join us at the Tri-Area Community Center on Thursday, October 12th from 6:30 to 7 PM.

General Business Meeting

A discussion of PTSLUG business.

Evening Topic

Introduction to Managing your Wi-fi

Wi-fi devices are becoming omnipresent and, increasingly, the primary means by which our devices connect to networks and the internet.  This topic will go over some wi-fi basics that you can use to improve your wireless network’s speed, reliability and security.  In addition, we will discuss ways to improve security when connecting to public wi-fi networks.

Afternoon  Class

Basic Things Every iPhone and iPad User Should Know and Do

The PTSLUG free monthly workshops will resume on Friday, October 27th from 2-4 PM in the Kala Point Clubhouse.

An iOS device is a powerful mini-computer that only gets better the more you know about it. iPhones, iPads, and iPods were designed to be (mostly) easy to use and figure out, and exploring all the features yourself can be one of the best things about owning an iOS device. In this two-hour workshop the presenter(s) will be exploring things every iOS owner should know and do. Lots of time for questions as well. Note: this workshop is NOT intended for those with only a Mac, either a desktop or laptop model.

Please do not try to sign up based on this announcement. Wait until you receive the email announcement. (Assuming you have signed up for PTSLUG's email announcements on the home page of the website.)

      Afternoon Class
The Monthly Afternoon Class covers a variety of topics related to both Mac and iOS devices. These are generally hands-on classes to help you better understand both the operating systems and the programs that run on them. This SIG meets on the fourth Friday of the month at the WSU Computer Room. These classes are free, but require reservations via our email list. Please subscribe to our email list above.

From time to time we record the audio and screen actions from presentations, or to illustrate answers to frequently asked questions. These screencasts can be a good source for video tutorials on Mac functions you may not be familiar with. To view these screencasts, please visit our Vimeo Gallery.
