Agenda For March 2019
5 - Protecting Your Digital Life
A guest you all know from past presentations,
Bob Gostischa, more commonly known as Bob G.,
will be back with us for this meeting. He is bring us a new
presentation which will be of interest to everyone.
Between ransomware, data breaches, cryptojacking, supply
chain attacks, and mobile malware, it's never been more important
to protect our digital life. Join presenter Bob Gostischa,
IT security expert and Avast evangelist, as he explains the
importance of guarding our online presence. Our security and
privacy are constantly in danger of being attacked from many
sources. Staying secure and guarding as much of our privacy
as possible is a constant challenge. This presentation covers
how we can protect our presence on the web as well as our
computers (Windows and Mac), tablets, smartphones, and other

March 19 - Cutting
will have Hewie Poplock, Central Florida Computer Society
/ Sarasota Technology Users Group to explain how he went
about ridding himself of the expensive TV bills.
There are many reasons to cut the cord. Most do so
to save money. Others do it to have better choices and just
to be able to fire their cable company. There are
many choices of products and equipment, as well as services
that are now available to let us change the way we have done
things in the past. Hewie will talk about over the air and
over the Internet services, including the many ways to fulfill
your wants and needs as to TV viewing. He will include information
about Broadband and even Internet home phones.
This presentation will help you understand many of the newest
possibilities for TV viewing and what to look for to satisfy
you and your family. Be prepared to have a lot of the confusion
make some sense and to determine if it may be the move for
you soon. TV, as we know it will disappear in the next few
years and you will understand what is happening and what choices
are available now and what to look for down the road.
He is willing to answer questions so I think you will find
it quite interesting.
