I need to talk to older / non-tech savy users about email and online security. Any slides you could share or recommend?

I have to give a talk to older people about security online.  Would anyone have slides they have or would use?

I envision talking about how to try to tell if emails are legit, ignore calls from microsoft and others, dangers of opening attachments, ignore emails / calls from the IRS, etc.  Ie basics, not all that complex.

Any recommendations?

My suggestions to friends and family are focused on basic cyber hygiene and awareness, such as:
- Know how to create strong passwords.

- Update your Wi-Fi router to employ a username (something besides “admin”) and a unique strong password. And better still, learn to check if you are being hacked : https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/31731/Am-I-being-hacked-What's-next.html

- Investigate the sender of each piece of email sent to you. If you place your mouse over the sender’s name, does it match who and where it claims to be from?

Collateral - which can be handy for slides

sajid - thanks!
Hi BeGentleWithMe-INeedHelp,

I don't have a ready made presentation that you can adapt, but if you want to post your presentation, I (and I'm sure others) would be happy to have a look at what you have and 'constructively critique' for you.

Once done, you might even make it a 'post' here on EE for others to use in the future.
