Title: What is Social Engineering?

It is very easy to get so comfortable online that you forget it’s still a public place. Social engineering is the act of tricking someone into divulging information or taking an action that leads to stealing important personal information or your money.
This webinar will show you what you need to know about keeping private information safe while socializing online.
SCAM of the Month
Title: Let Me call you Sweetheart: Romance Scams
Everyone wants to find that perfect love and baby-boomers and seniors are a very romantic group. But…according to the Federal trade commission people reported losing $143 million dollars to romance scams last year. This is technically called “The Sweetheart Scam” and it is one of the most widely used scams used to get your money.
This webinar will discuss the cybersecurity threats surrounding the “sweetheart Scam” and show you how to identify and avoid becoming a victim.

Introduction to Cyber-Seniors
Cyber-Seniors Trailer
Meet the Cyber-Seniors

"I’ve seen a big change in our seniors since the Cyber-Seniors program started. Several of them, who spent a lot of time by themselves, are now reaching out to the other seniors more often."


Lisa, Activities Coordinator, Retirement Community, Milwaukee, WI

"The senior partner I was assigned to was very friendly with me and shared personal stories about him that really touched me. He also inspired me to do more and be more."


Javier, High School Student, Los Angeles, CA

"So many of my students were reluctant in the beginning about teaching someone much older than them, and what knowledge they could possibly share. Well it turns out, quite a lot. But they also learned just as much."


Kathryn, High School Teacher, Hoboken, New Jersey

"My [Cyber-Seniors] mentor was very attentive and helpful. She showed me how to download a few helpful apps on my phone and we used Adobe Spark to create a YouTube video tutorial on how to play Mahjong."


Betty, Senior Citizen, Rancho Cucamonga, CA

"The Cyber-Seniors Program has provided my gerontology students with such practical, hands-on training for learning how to be effective and empathetic support workers and teachers."


Sue-Ann, Assistant Professor of Gerontology, Boston, MA
