Understanding Cell Phone Privacy and Cloud Usage to Prevent Identity Theft

Hodges University News

Do you have your privacy settings activated on your mobile device? Do you know what and how the cloud works? Hodges University’s Identity Fraud Institute wants to make sure Southwest Florida residents are equipped with the necessary tools and knowledge to keep hackers out by providing two workshops in September focusing on privacy settings and using the cloud.

Hosted by Carrie Kerskie, director of the Identity Fraud Institute, both workshops will be held on Hodges’ Naples campus, which is located at 2647 Professional Way, Naples, FL 34119.

The "Privacy Settings for iPhones" workshop will be from 10:00-11:00 a.m. on September 12, 2017. During this workshop, individuals will learn how to properly use privacy settings to prevent hackers from accessing a mobile device or tablet’s location and other personal information.   

The "The Risks of Using the Cloud" workshop will be from 10:00-11:00 a.m. on September 26, 2017. In this workshop, Kerskie will answer the questions, “What is the cloud?” and “Where is the cloud?” In addition, she will explain the risks and rewards of using cloud-based services.

The cost to attend each workshop is $25 per person. Advanced registration is required. To register, visit https://hu.formstack.com/forms/ifi_wkshop.
