The BASICS OF Internet Safety & Security for Seniors

Thanks to today's technological advances and the relative ease of getting online, we can learn new things instantly, check the weather, re-connect with old friends, and check our bank account statements all in the comfort of our own homes. Seniors have discovered that this 'new' technology is able to enhance and simplify their lives. Yet Seniors may not know that a lack of awareness of the hidden dangers that lurk in - email, browsers, and the smartphone - can cost them dearly. Loss of retirement savings and worse - identity theft - can result from a lack of cyber awareness. We will address these issues in this 2-hour program designed to identify the dangers and provide Seniors with the tools necessary to navigate the digital world safely.

General Information About PCS

The Prescott Computer Society (PCS) is a PC-based users group located in Prescott, Arizona. Our primary attention is focused on IBM-compatible computers, associated software and smart phones. We strive to provide personal, home office and small business computing solutions and presentation topics. You may obtain both basic and advanced information about computers by attending our club's meetings.

We hold several meetings each month to show you how to get the most out of your computer. These are our General meeting and several Special Interest Group meetings. Anyone with an interest in computers is welcome to attend our meetings and join PCS.

PCS is a member of the Association of Personal Computer User Groups (APCUG).

Fun Stuff

A typical "Stump The Geeks" Q&A session which is chaired by some of our favorite PCS members. It's always full of laughter and is enjoyed by all those who attend.

We often hold Question and Answer sessions at General meetings where our members attempt to "Stump The Geeks" with their questions about computer and smartphone problems and other related issues.

Do the geeks ever get stumped? Of course, once in a while they do but we all appreciate the very interesting and informative discussions that are held. I guess you'll just have to come to a meeting to see for yourself.
