Password Managers
Presented by Roger Fujii

"This will be a brief talk about password managers - what they are and how do they work. It will focus on lastpass (since that is what I am most familiar with) but I will generalize it enough to cover other password managers. Come with questions if you have any...."

PATACS Treasurer Roger Fujii is noted for his ability to find solutions to challenging technical issues.

Arlington Meeting Info & Maps       


The program planners for our First Wednesday PATACS meetings in Arlington are looking for topics that members would like to have explored or questions answered - this is your opportunity to have a say in subjects addressed at this meeting. This is a smaller meeting than the Fairfax meeting, and it allows for much more interaction between members than is possible in Fairfax. And – there's the post-meeting Pizza and Salad SIG, the post-meeting social at a nearby restaurant - another value-added feature of your membership! Please send your suggestions to our meeting program planners at arlmtgpgm@patacs.org.

Presented by Tom Gutnick

Every time you connect your computer, phone, or tablet to another network, you’re putting your device — and your personal information — at risk. Using a Virtual Private Network  can mitigate the risks. We’ll explain the risks and how the technology helps keep you safe.

Tom Gutnick — technologist, educator, musician — has worked in the computer industry for most of his adult life. As the owner of Sunny Banana IT Consulting, he helps small businesses and home offices use technology more effectively. He also teaches personal technology at Arlington Adult Education and information technology at Northern Virginia Community College.
