Competency: Public Access Technology

Sub-Category: Consults appropriate sources to stay informed of emerging security threats and the most current strategies and tools


Library staff and the public are connecting to WIFI networks at their workplaces, in coffee shops, McDonalds, convenience stores and many other places. Additionally, many library and consumer services are switching to web based only access.


What you and your patrons may not know is that as connections to the web are made via these access points, some of your information is unknowingly being shared when you connect. 


In this informative program, learn how to protect your data, computer and identity while using these networks. You’ll also learn about alternative Internet connections such as tethering, VPNs and hotspots. When the program is over, you’ll be ready to share this valuable information with your patrons!

All Other Libraries: $15.00
