On Saturday June 30, 2012 FireLogic hosted the first of a two part brand new series being offered at the Niles Library. The class was open to all Park Ridge, Niles, and residents of other surrounding suburbs free of charge and was geared towards beginning computer users who are new to the concepts of the internet, email, social networking, and the like. There was a record crowd for FireLogic’s Niles Library classes so far at 15, and we are hoping that this number can grow even larger as time goes on.

The major topics covered included how to prevent virus/malware infection on your PC, how to spot phising and spam emails, how to deal with social engineering over email and phone, and related topics. The class was put on by FireLogic team members Derrick Wlodarz and Wesley Howard. Derrick is a fully certified security professional with Security+ certification from the Computing Technology Industry Association. Both of these team members have vast experience with not only securing computer systems, but also with training users on proper computer usage and internet responsibility.
FireLogic will be hosting “Computer & Internet Safety for Intermediate Users” at the Niles Library on August 4, 2012 from 10am to 11:30am in the large first floor computer room. Signup can be done over the internet on the Niles Library website or via phone by calling the library at 847-663-1234. Register soon as spots are filling up fast, and judging from how popular the last class was, we expect another large crowd for this class. We will be covering advanced topics like using custom DNS servers to filter your internet connection, employing parental control software for home computers, and much more!
