Space is limited and advance registration is encouraged. Click here for registration information.

Hacking, Identity Theft, and Ransomware, oh my! - Thursday, October 24, 7 p.m., Skokie Police Headquarters, 7300 Niles Center Road

The Village of Skokie Telecommunications and Technology Commission and the Skokie Police Department will be conducting a free educational program on Information Security and Digital Privacy. The ongoing digital evolution results in technology becoming more and more complex at the same time as our lives shift increasingly online. This program, presented jointly by an experienced information security professional and Skokie Police officers, will provide an introduction to modern information security and digital privacy, discuss and dispel common myths, share practical suggestions for citizens to take in order to protect themselves online and provide instructions for how and when to contact police if they believe they have been a victim of cybercrime. Due to seating capacity, registration for this program is requested by emailing or calling the Skokie Village Manager’s Office at 847-933-8210.
