September 7, 2017: Linda Bathe, “Club Ownership Meeting”.   

Head Table:  Our President Linda Bathe, invites all the major chairpersons, to join her at the head table.
 
This Week:  Today's meeting had two speakers, both Stratford Rotary Club members. Charlene Gordon provided us with a refresher course on how to use our ClubRunner website. ClubRunner serves as a membership management and communication system for clubs and districts with features such as attendance reporting, event and volunteer management, directory builder, email and newsletter broadcast services, and social media integration.
 
Speaker Rotarian  Dan Kane talking on cybersecurity
 
Areas touched on by Charlene included how easy it is to update your Personal information and where to view the club directory and documents. Online make-ups and  the Email Message Center were also highlighted. 
 
Dan Kane followed up with presentation outlining some of the issues relating to cyber security and how they affect home users. He gave us a
brief background on the different threats we face, such as malware, which is short for malicious software and refers to a variety of forms
of hostile or intrusive software such as Trojan horses, worms, bots, botnets, zombies, ransomware and DDoS, or distributed denial-of-service attacks. 
 
Dan stressed the need for all home and business pc users to have up-to-date antivirus software and have it set to scan your computer regularly. Don't make passwords easy to guess, change often. Don't use a search engine, such as Google, to get to your online bank account.
