September 12. Regular meeting: The Equifax Data Breach, What to Do to Protect Yourself?
On September 7, 2017, the credit reporting agency Equifax announced there had been major breach of their databases. As you probably know, Equifax one of the three large credit reporting agencies that have massive databases of financial, credit and personal information on nearly everyone. In this breach, hackers stole information on 145 million consumers. The information stolen includes Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, bank account numbers, birth dates and credit history data. The breach occurred over a month ago. It was discovered in late July.
In our meeting I will attempt to explain what you should and should not do to protect yourself. I don’t claim to be an expert in this area but I will lead you through what I have learned and what experts recommend. In addition, Judy Reynolds will show us a couple of tricks with Apple Numbers.
We will meet at the Flossmoor Station Restaurant. The program starts 7 but all are welcome starting at 6 p.m. Please join us for dinner and bring anyone interested in learning more about Apple products.
