U3A members learn how not to be hacked

Guest speaker Ray Bryant gave an interesting (and sometimes scary) insight into Cyber Security at the Javea U3A April monthly general meeting at the Parador. Ray, who works for a company that supplies knowledge and software to major security companies around the world, explained how our homes are vulnerable to cyber attacks through ordinary household equipment such as computers, smart TVs, smart phones and even computer-intelligent car ignitions! Warning that it was not a case of IF we were attacked but WHEN, Ray offered ways we can cut the risk of being hacked, such as managing passwords, protecting devices with reliable security applications and backing up regularly. Ray was thanked for his presentation by U3A Groups Coordinator David Whybrow.
