Cybersecurity lunch & learn: Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places

February 1, 2023

In February, join the Information Security Office for a timely lunch and learn series on catfishing and romance scams. Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places offers insights and information to keep you safe online.

Catfishing occurs when scammers set up fake profiles promising romance or companionship. Most want to steal your money.

Do you know that Facebook took down over 1.3 billion fake accounts in 2022? Social media platforms have produced more romance scams than dating sites.

Our team of experts will demystify catfishing and romance scams during interactive talks. Have young adults, parents or grandparents spending time online? This information can help them too!

On Thursday, February 2, cybersecurity reporter Kerry Tomlinson takes us inside a months-long investigation. Kerry went undercover to expose a romance scammer at work.

On Thursday, February 9, our guest speakers will share real life tales and tips to outsmart scammers.

(Note: each of the sessions is unique with different presenters. Attend one or both.)

And don’t miss our February 14 Jeopardy game! You can test your knowledge of romance scams and catfishing with your colleagues.

Register to join us for one or more of these upcoming events!
