Topics:             New Security Issues & Solutions:
                           Keyless Cars and Safe Power Sources

Speaker:         JOHN KRAUT, APCUG Speaker’s Bureau

Our speaker will cover several distinct but unusual security topics in this order:

  1. Theft of Keyless Entry Cars including Q&A.
  2. More Power To You in three parts, with Q&A after each part. The parts are:
  3. Power Bank Batteries,
  4. Inverters, and
  5. Small power strips and charger blocks for use at airports and on airplanes.

While observing Cybersecurity month, by popular demand we are not rehashing the old stuff. If you have other security questions or problems, you might read this issue of User Friendly and/or join this meeting between 6:30 and 6:50 to discuss them.
