Speaker: Joe Melfi, Consultant

How do we keep the curious and the devious from seeing our activity while using the internet? We all need to protect critical information like passwords, account logins, and other private info. Web surfing and emails could be more vulnerable to snooping than most people know, especially when using public Wi-Fi! We’ll discuss the best way to help make your data unreadable and untraceable.

Who Should Be Using VPN?

  • Anyone in public… Free/Paid Wi-Fi at coffee shops, restaurants, libraries, hotels, etc.
  • Mobile users and travelers that may need to use unknown networks
  • Home users for security and privacy

Topics include: Focus on VPN solutions, how it works, types available, apps and software, devices and hardware, free versus pay options, and caveats and compromises (nothing is perfect).
