1.       File Sharing 101 – Wednesday, May 7, 2014 – Online Webinar – You just received a notification that someone on your network is sharing Copyrighted Material.  Now what?  While P2P file sharing technology is completely legal, many of the files shared through P2P are copyrighted and therefore could put your organization at risk of being involved in a lawsuit.  In the Webinar we’re going to explore the different types of file-sharing applications, how they work, and if there’s anything you can do to control them.  Click here to register for this event.
2.       Security Roadshow! – MOREnet Security is excited to hit the road again this summer to bring the 2014 Security Roadshow to a location near you.  Since we’re making the rounds in June this year, we decided to take a slightly different approach and are going to focus on different aspects of the current threat landscape – from a MOREnet member’s perspective – and what you can do to better protect/secure your organization.  We also hope you’ll take the opportunity during each session to share best practices and brainstorm solutions with MOREnet members in your part of the state.  
a.       The first four sessions will be hosted at different locations around the state and will be a Lunch and Learn style where you BYOBB (Bring Your Own Brown Bag) from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM. 
b.      The fifth session is for those of you who aren’t able to attend one of the hosted events and will be an online active webinar.
c.       Here’s the preliminary agenda for each session:
     i.      Welcome and introductions
     ii.      Social Media – A brief overview of the everyday risks to adults and kids with today’s social media apps
     iii.      Account Auditing and Security – School will soon be out for summer, and open accounts of users
          who are not returning are a great avenue for attack
     iv.      DDoS Mitigation – Is there anything you can do to prevent DNS and NTP amplification attacks
     v.      Filehsaring – What it is, How it works and Can you control it
     vi.      Current Threat Landscape – What’s in the news and how it relates to our member organizations

Do you remember to lock your computer when you walk away?  If not, do you know who has easy access?  Although much of the data we touch each day isn’t confidential, that doesn’t mean it isn’t sensitive and worth protecting.  Usually this is as easy as pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL.
