The world of spam

Spam has been a huge part of online life for over 20 years. Now a major source of malicious activity, it’s more likely to try to infect you with ransomware or steal your online identity as it is to advertise unwanted products.
Jon Thompson is a threat intelligence analyst at SE Labs, which performs independent tests of antivirus products in a laboratory environment. He will discuss the threats facing our inboxes, the criminal economy that surrounds them, how samples are captured for study and testing, and how to spot most common scams.

Talk starts 6.30pm, Vale Inn, Adlington Road, Bollington

All welcome, no charge. Early arrival advised to be sure of getting a seat.
