Howard Community College Presents “Tipping Point – Equifax Data Breach”
Columbia, MD – A recent Gallup poll showed Americans worry far more about becoming victims of identity theft than that of a conventional crime. With more than 145 million consumers potentially affected by the recent Equifax data breach, it’s not hard to see why.
So what happened? And what can consumers do to prevent hackers from gaining access to sensitive personal information? On Wednesday, November 29, 2017, Sung Lee, director of student computer support at Howard Community College (HCC), will discuss the background of the recent breach, how stolen credentials are used, how to protect your data and credit, and how HCC is training students to prevent and mitigate future data breaches in his presentation of “Tipping Point – Equifax Data Breach.”
“This presentation will be a technical dive into what is known about the breach, and the measures you can take to protect yourself and your identity,” Lee said.
The presentation will take place from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Kittleman Room, located in Duncan Hall, Room 100, at Howard Community College, 1090 Little Patuxent Parkway, Columbia, MD 21044. The event is free and open to the public.
The discussion will also be livestreamed. To access the presentation, visit "Tipping Point - Equifax Data Breach". This link will not be active until the time of the event.
