(InfoSec 201) What danger lurks when you’re surfing the web? Most of us know that our security and privacy can be at risk, but how? Join us as we explore the viruses, worms, trojan horses, rootkits, spyware, adware, and other malicious software that can infect your devices. We will also discuss ways to protect yourself from these attacks. Please note that this session will run from 2:05-2:50 PM.

Accommodation requests related to a disability should be made to infosec@princeton.edu. Please contact us at least 7 days prior to the event.
