’62 Auditorium (G-9425), Medical Center. Registration is $30 and begins

community together to discuss issues related to medical and spiritual
care of children and adolescents. For more information, contact Ruth
Lawrence at email@example.com.
Instant Messaging Security
Instant messaging has many of the same security threats as email.
Instant messaging can transfer viruses and other malware and give
hackers an easy way to find victims. If you regularly use instant
messaging, University IT reminds you to be aware of the security risks
associated with it and take steps to protect yourself. Do you have ideas that should be shared as security tips of the week? Send them to UnivIT_SP@ur.rochester.edu.
