Prez Says for October 2023

Welcome to October, lots of rain, Columbus Day, Halloween, and football!  I hope you and your family enjoy the season of witches and pumpkins.

On October 3rd at 7:00 PM at the North Bellevue Community Center, our General Meeting program will be "Cybersecurity A to Z" presented by Bob Gostischa.  This will be a hybrid meeting (in-person meeting and Zoom meeting combined).  So, what is Cybersecurity?  Cybersecurity ensures the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information and systems. This means protecting against unauthorized access or modification of data, ensuring that systems are available for use when needed, and maintaining the privacy of information. Sit back and let me provide you with the information needed so you can use best practices to stay secure. This presentation will give you all the information you need to become a Cybersecurity guru.  After his presentation, Bob will be able to answer your questions live in Zoom.

Do you have questions about one of your computer devices or software?   Join Leader Andy Peck at 6:00 PM on October 3rd for our Technology Corner, a hybrid meeting.

If you want to learn more about Linux, visit Steve Herber at our Linux Special Interest Group hybrid meeting starting at 6:30 PM on October 10th. The Linux Group also has a build-your-own server project Zoom meeting at 6:30 PM on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month.

Don't forget to drop in on Sally Ann at our Zoom Digital Imaging Special Interest Group Meeting at 7:00 PM on October 26th.  October's Theme is Wonderful Wildlife.

To keep up with technology, visit to learn about their Monday morning meetings (9:00 AM PT), their Newsletter, and their Facebook page.

Be sure to download all security updates on all of your devices; the bad guys have been very busy lately proliferating viruses, malware, trojans, ransomware, etc.

We welcome visitors!  Plan to attend an in-person meeting.  I look forward to seeing you soon.
