With more older adults than ever online and engaged in social media, seniors are at an ever-increasing threat that their financial and other personal information will be compromised.
In fact, a recent study conducted by the Home Instead Senior Care network revealed some startling facts:
- 50% of senior citizens do not use a password on at least one of their internet-enabled devices;
- 1 in 5 seniors are going without an antivirus software; and
- 38% of seniors say that someone has tried to scam them.
What’s more, family caregivers can lack the knowledge needed to protect their loved ones from these growing risks.
Whether you're a senior citizens or a family caregiver, you are invited to join us for this free workshop to learn about the cyber threats that can put older adults in jeopardy - and the best practices that they can employ to avoid becoming a scam target.
