Data Security and Internet Safety Resources

Thursday, November 1st, 2018 @ 4:15PM

On October 30th, State Representative Randy Hunt hosted a data security and internet safety presentation at the Sandwich Council on Aging. Inspired by Representative Hunt’s service on the conference committee for House Bill 4806, An Act Relative to Consumer Protection from Security Breaches, this presentation focuses on educating Cape Codders on how to protect their credit from the Equifax data breach, safe ways to use the internet, and how to protect themselves against email and phone scams.
