NCompass Live: IT Security for Libraries

NCompass live smallJoin us for next week’s NCompass Live, “IT Security for Libraries”, on Wednesday, May 27, 10:00-11:00 am Central Time.

Most any library can be a target, so join Blake Carver, the Owner of LISHost.org, and get some ideas on how to make your library and your home more secure. Carver covers privacy, as it is closely related to security, and should be taken seriously. He shares many ways to stay safe online, how to secure your browser, PC, and other devices you and your patrons use every day. He also tackles some common security myths, talks about secure passwords and network security, as well as hardware and PC security. Carver discusses security issues that you’ll find in your library as well as tricks sysadmins can do with servers to make things safer for you, and that you’ll never see as an end user.
