“Practicing Safe Computing” – South Orange County Calif. Genealogical Society

August 17, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


South Orange County California Genealogical Society

“Practicing Safe Computing” – Presented by Hal Bookbinder

Computers and the internet are vital tools in our genealogical research. But whenever we venture onto the internet, we put ourselves at risk. Viruses and other forms of malware can infect our computers. Phishing and hacking can reveal data about us which can compromise our privacy and assets. This presentation reviews the actions you can take to minimize the risk and respond to situations when you have been infected or your data has been hacked. The speaker has been an information technology (IT) professional for more than 40 years, has managed security for two multibillion-dollar organizations, has taught IT security courses at the university level and writes a monthly column on Practicing Safe Computing.

About the speaker: Hal Bookbinder writes and lectures extensively on diverse genealogical topics, including border changes, migration, citizenship, safe computing, locating relatives and Jewish culture and history. He has served as president of the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies and has chaired or co-chaired several International Jewish Genealogy Conferences. Professionally, he is an Information Technology Director in healthcare and a part-time university instructor. The presentation will begin after a short business meeting at 10 a.m. and concludes at noon.

Visitors are invited to this free program on Saturday, August 17th, which includes refreshments. The society meets at 27976 Marguerite Parkway at Hillcrest Drive. Park and enter behind the church. For more information, contact
