LWVCA Monthly Meeting. Program - Internet Privacy, Security, and How to Protect Yourself Moderator: Dr. Matt Saltzman.

Consider the recent news that Equifax has been hacked and up to 143 million records stolen. Facebook accounts are duplicated, and strange "bots" send notes to your friends. Why should you care about Net Neutrality? Whether you focus on your own personal computer or on how to advocate for greater protections, there is a powerful need to understand today's perception of "privacy."

The evening's discussion will focus on two things: What you can do to protect your own privacy and how you can advocate for all citizens' privacy. Matt will introduce you to an innovative browser, organizations that promote how to maximize your privacy, and review some of the concerns that average people have.

We hope you will join us for a conversation that most of us really need to have. We don't promise it will make you feel more comfortable with your tech toys, but you will be armed with solid information to guide future decisions. There will be plenty of time for discussion.

Conversation at 7:15 p.m. Program at 7:39.
