“How to Avoid Being Scammed"
Larry Sullivan, Technical Security Consultant

Scammed! Just the word can send shivers up our spine. We need to know how we can recognize it when it is happening and how we can avoid it. Larry Sullivan, an experienced technical security consultant, can help us with that. Larry will make us aware of:

  • “social engineering”– tricking someone into giving up their personal information
  • passwords – what are the best passwords and how to protect them
  • mobile devices – what to be aware of for security purposes
  • phishing – what is “phishing” and how do we recognize it
  • information privacy – what information should be private, and
  • “malware” – what is it and how do we know we have it.

Please attend and bring all your questions!

Larry Sullivan is the Director of Technical and Consulting Services at Net Compliance Solutions (NCS). He joined NCS from Raytheon, where he served as an arms inspector in Ukraine, Russia and several other countries. Prior to his role as arms inspector, he was a member of the logistical operations component of the U.S. Department of Defense, where he was awarded “Contractor of the Year” for designing and implementing a succession of cost saving programs.
