In recognition of National Cyber Security Awareness Month in October, Catawba Valley Community College’s Information Systems Security Club will present a free session on “Protecting Your Personal Identity,” Mon., Oct. 29, 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Held in Room 277 of the Robert E. Paap Bldg. on the college’s Main Campus on US Hwy. 70 SE, the session is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served.

Every day, there’s news of another corporate major security breach. Identity thieves can take your personal information and drain your bank account, use your credit cards, open new utility accounts, use your health insurance, or commit crimes.  

Sponsored by Prodigy Voice and Data of Hickory, this hands-on class will focus on how to create strong passwords, how to deal with popups, risks of opening attachments and software updates, the risks of public wi-fi, safety issues with email and instant messaging and free online tools.

The session is free, but space is limited. To reserve a seat, contact Deborah Myers, meyers580@cvcc.edu, 828-327-7000, ext. 4005.
