10-15-2019 Los Angeles Computer Society - Los Angeles, CA

This evening I had the pleasure of addressing the LACSPC.
The presentation was well received and followed by a Q&A session.
Most of the questions asked pertained to the use of a VPN like the Avast SecureLine.

I spent the first part of this evening with the members of ( https://bgamug.org/ )
We started a bit late since they had a problem with the first two computers they started. Number three, thankfully, worked.
The presentation was followed by a Q&A session.

10-17-2019 Modesto PCUG - Modesto, CA

The saying is "All's well that ends well."
Unfortunately, last night's second presentation never really got off the ground.
You could call this one "Mission Impossible." (Sorry.)
The club was not able to use their regular meeting place and the alternate had next to no internet access.
We tried for over 1/2 hr. to make it work but to no avail. There weren't any hotpots available
as alternatives so we were force to abandon the attempt. It's never nice when that happens.
As a saving grace, the follow up information I send out to the club contains a link to a YouTube recording
of this presentation made earlier in the year. https://youtu.be/z15dxvWQrfc

10-19-2019 Northern Neck Computer Users Group - Kilmarnock, VA


This mornings presentation was for the NNCUG members.
The Q&A session that followed covered a variety of topics but, most
of the questions related to Phishing attempts via phone and/or email.
The best advice to avoid and end a phone scam is to simply hang up the phone.
The free version of Avast also does an excellent job of protecting you against Phishing

10-20-2019 East-Central Ohio Technology Users Club - Newark, OH


This afternoon I addressed the members of the ECOTUC.
I've been a member of this club for quite a few years because they pass along so much
valuable technology related information.
It was an excellent presentation and was followed by many questions covering VPN,
WiFi Inspector, Password Manager, Avast Mobile Security and,
Applying a credit freeze.

10-22-2019 Princeton PC Users Group - Princeton, NJ


This evenings presentation for the PPCUG users was a little strange for me since the laptop
the club used had no cam. I was able to hear my audience but not see them.
After the meeting we have a nice discussion on password security and 2 Factor authentication.

10-25-2019 Covenant Village Computer Club - Denver, CO



I remotely spent some of this afternoon with some of the residents of Covenant Village.
The presentation was well received as evident by the questions asked
after the presentation.



During the Q&A session, we covered phishing attacks, firewalls, and phone scams.
I was also asked about products available for Apple users, Mac and iOS.

10-28-2019 Bits and Bytes - Oklahoma City, OK


I spent this afternoon remotely with the members of Bits & Bytes.
The cam on the laptop used on the computer clubs didn't work but the presentation went off without any problems.
Lots of laughter during the presentation and quite a few questions after the presentation.
We spent some time doing a hands on explanation of Avast Omni since that was of great interest to the club members.

10-31-2019 Mile High Computer Resource Organization (MICRO) - Denver,CO


As the last presentation during this Cyber Security Awareness Month,
it was nice to remotely spend this evening with the members of MICRO.
I was happy to be in my home since in Denver they had about a foot of snow.
During the Q&A that followed the presentation I was asked how Avast makes its money if the product is free.
There were also questions on the Avast SecureLine.

11/1/2019 Deerfield Beach Computer Club Inc. - Deerfield Beach, FL
It was nice to be back in warm Florida even if it was a remote Zoom visit.
I received a "warm welcome from the members of the Deerfied Beach Computer Club.
We started the presentation off with the following announcement.


If you haven't updated your copy of Chrome, please do so ASAP.

The presentation was followed by a Q&A session where I received questions about SecureLine,
the Passwords Manager and Omni.



One of the members also expressed his disappointment at some of the ads in the free version of Avast.

11-2-2019 APCUG VTC Conference - Virtual Tech. Conference

I was happy to be invited and give a Virtual Technology Conference for the
members of APCUG. One of the questions after the presentation related to
Avast Omni. APCUG puts on these conferences four times a year on various
tech related topics. The only qualification for joining requires a membership in
a member club. I'm also a proud member of the APCUG Speakers Bureau.
