Aaron Jones: Introduction To Holiday Safety

Description:
Introduction To Holiday Safety is a two hour course focused on preparing for the holiday rush. While the holidays are a great time to shop, eat, and have fun, they are also a popular time for criminals who will be looking for ways to enrich themselves illegally. We will be discussing some of the tools and tactics used such as phishing, credit card skimming, and purse snatching and some of the things you can do to protect yourself. This class is targeted towards the general public and does not require any experience in cyber security.
