Computer Safety Course to be Offered on August 24

August 9, 2016

These days, you can do everything on your computer—from buying a small gift to selling your car. Not to mention keeping in touch with family and friends on social media, storing photos and videos and managing your bills and investments. But all these conveniences can come at a cost—one that could compromise your safety and the safety of your most valuable assets.

But don’t feel overwhelmed. There are precautions you can take to ensure you’re better protected from phishing, compromised personal data and identity theft. Burke is committed not only to helping our patients recover from an illness or injury, but to helping the community at large stay safe and educated about topics that are most important to them.

To that end—and to help you better navigate these waters—Burke is hosting a Computer Safety Course on Wednesday, August 24. Cathy Dwyer, Burke’s Chief Information Officer, will be offering tips on how to stay safe, with simple steps you can do to protect yourself and your information, while still remaining active and engaged online and off.

The event will take place from 8:30 am to 9:30 am in the Rosedale Conference Room of Burke’s Billings building (Building #4) on the main campus in White Plains. Light refreshments will be served and there will be a Q&A session to follow the presentation.

To register in advance, contact Julia Moran at jmoran@burke.org or call (914) 597-2871.
