Attacks on computers have become more sophisticated in the last several years. Michael Inskeep will review general principles of digital security, vulnerabilities of iPads and iPhones, and suggest simple steps users can take to protect themselves against attack.

These strategies are based on reports of current and emerging threats, his familiarity with the security features of Apple products, and his practical experience helping users — both experienced and naive. Michael's presentation will be aimed at people using a personal iDevice at home or on the road.

He has been supporting Macintosh computers and other Apple products for 27 years in different capacities: as Director of Microcomputing for the University of Pennsylvania's School of Arts and Sciences; as Technology Coordinator/Teacher for Friends School Haverford; and since 1999 through his independent consulting business, Gentle Computer Helpers.

Apple released macOS 10.12 Sierra a few months ago with new features and configuration options. Whether this is your first experience with macOS or or just an update, before you do anything like customizing your Mac, loading new apps, or syncing your data, you should take a few steps to lock down your Mac and protect your privacy.

Khürt will focus on setting security configurations for Safari, App Store, Secure Payment (via iOS), etc. He will explain some of the security architecture of macOS and explain how macOS protects data stored on the Mac, as well as how to decommission a used device for re-sale. Khürt will also give general security awareness tips.
