Ransomware Word CloudOctober is National Cybersecurity Awareness month, so in this session we will explore a subject that is top in the news: ransomware or how did my computer get kidnapped?! With a 288% increase in ransomware attacks in the first half of 2021, what can you do to prevent yourself from becoming a victim? We'll explore what is ransomware, how it can affect you, and some preventative measures. Other cyber security topics such as phishing, identity theft, and other things that go "bump" into your computer will also be covered.

Masks backgroundAt this time, face masks are strongly recommended while you are in the library. 

Trivia at Home: Schitt's CreekIn the sitcom Schitt's Creek, a wealthy couple suddenly find themselves completely broke.

Test your knowledge of the show with other fans on Saturday, September 25.
