AN INFORMATIONAL SESSION FROM PURDUE MEP, OUR SISTER MANUFACTURING EXTENSION PARTNERSHIP AGENCY

Malware (short for Malicious Software or Malicious Code) is computer code written to steal or harm. It includes viruses, spyware, and ransomware. Sometimes malware only uses up computing resources (e.g. memory), but other times it can record your actions or send your personal and sensitive information to cyber criminals. This session will provide actions to consider beyond automatic anti-virus updates.
