FROM THE TEACHER

If you are like most people you have data scattered on multiple devices (computers, tablets, smartphones, etc) and across multiple online accounts (email, social media, and others). How can you protect your data on your own networks and on public networks. You will learn basic techniques for interacting online and making sure your data is as secure as possible.
