FULTON, NY – Rotarian Jerry Seguin introduced Stephanie Maturo, director of technology for the Fulton School District at a recent Fulton Noon Rotary Club meeting.
Stephanie discussed the need for internet security in our personal lives, our homes, and especially with our children.
Her message was for us to be very careful on what we put on the internet, especially on social sites, such as Facebook.
Stephanie urged the use of passwords on all our electronic equipment so that other individuals or even our family members can’t access our own information.
In the case of our young children, they should be restricted to what sites they can access.
There are many electronic devices in our house that access the internet, and there are many individuals that want to take advantage of our lack of security when we use these devices.
She spoke of the GPS located in all our phones and how to turn it off when taking pictures.
A lot of practical knowledge was given by Stephanie on what we should do in this day of internet use.
She suggested that we Google our names and see what appears.
