Smart Phone and Mobile Service Security
– Gracie A.

I was immediately impressed with the background and knowledge of the panel.  The webinar provided me with an overview of mobile device security risks and considerations.  Although this webinar mostly referenced corporations and employees working from home via VPN, I found the webinar to be relevant for everyone who uses a computer or smartphone.  It virtually goes into depth about how important it is to secure and protect your mobile devices.  I was particularly interested in the importance of making sure you download trusted apps.  Also, careful use of your computer when you use public WIFI access (i.e., Starbucks, restaurants) and being aware of malicious rogue devices used to hack into your computer or smartphone.

In summary, I thought the information was informative, relevant and the examples used were helpful and easy to understand. The audio was good and the slides were easy to follow.

Cyber Acts of War During Current [during Trump] Administration

It was very interesting. I felt as if I were at a round table with the speakers. In review of the content, it had me think about how I can begin making adjustments to our office procedures to increase productivity. I ended up listening to it 3 times, pausing and taking notes.
