Staying Safe on the Internet: My Experience with Identity Theft

Matt Courtney

July 22, 2018

What could happen when hackers break into some of your online accounts and try to steal your identity? That’s exactly what happened to HCSV member Matt Courtney a few months ago when hackers hacked into his email and his phone account. He will tell the story of what happened, things he did right and things he did wrong. Then, Matt will go over what you can do to secure your online accounts and avoid getting hacked.

Matt has worked as a software engineer for over 15 years (and probably should have known better than to leave his accounts unsecured). He is an atheist, skeptic, and a member of the board of the Humanist Community of Silicon Valley. You have probably seen Matt running the video camera at the Sunday Forums.

After the Forum, please join us for a lunch at 12:30pm. The lunch is complimentary for first-time visitors and students.
