Upcoming Events

Online on Thursday March 14, 2024, at 7pm EDT: Cybersecurity and Hearing Loss.

Andy Chandler, our Treasurer, will discuss further ways to protect yourself and your data from online threats.

Cybersecurity threats

What does Hearing Loss have to do with Cybersecurity? A lot, actually. Daily, we are bombarded with phishing attacks, security warnings, and fraud alerts. How do we protect ourselves from identity theft, loss of funds, and loss of reputation? Especially when it comes to the dreaded … telephone?

With over 20 years of cybersecurity experience, and as a lifelong hearing aid wearer and recent CI recipient, Andy will provide tips and tricks to keep you safe not only from cybercriminals and social media, but also from those persistent alerts from the “IRS”, “Social Security”, and the … (big voice) “FEDERAL GOVERNMENT” (none, of course, which are real). And there are those cyber “invites” seeking friendship – are they really friends? Or are they preying on the sense of isolation we sometimes feel as individuals with hearing loss? Find out what you can do to protect yourself and your loved ones.
