2019 03 Network Security

Location: TBA
Date: Monday, 11 March 2019
Time: 7:00-9:00PM

We’ve talked about Malware and the importance of Keeping Computers Up To Date, and even just about The Things We Should Fear. But what new hazards are unveiled when you connect two or more computers together? When some of those computers aren’t on your own network? When malusers are out there trying to break into your network? When you’re actually inviting everyone into your network by running servers and services? Should you just outsource everything? Or are there tools available for the Non-Profit SysAdmin to help secure your networks?
