North Dakota State University Extension is hosting a free webinar for individuals interested in learning about tactics used by scammers and how they can improve their knowledge of online security to better safeguard their personal and financial information. The webinar is offered via Zoom.
The virtual webinar, The Power of Prevention: How to Safeguard Yourself Against Cybercrime, will be held on June 8, from 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 am CDT. The webinar is free to attend but individuals must register.
Ally Armeson, Military and Veteran Program Director at Cybercrime Support Network (CSN) will present.

The webinar is co-sponsored by South Dakota State University Extension and the North Dakota AARP.
