“The event today was very informative. It made me think about things such as passwords and the need/want for a password protection program.  There is the need, but I keep putting off until tomorrow what I can’t put off until the next day.”
Steve A
“There seem to be so many ways one can be hacked that it now scares me senseless! Thank you, KnowledgeWise for your time and patience.”
Susan C
“Thank you for a very informative session on cyber safety. You presented a somewhat dry subject in a very engaging, eye-opening and empowering way. Both of us stayed engaged and very interested throughout the whole session and still revisit some of your points several weeks later.”
Iris M
“The information we learned was invaluable to myself and my family. We learned about on-line dangers and how to avoid them.  We are so grateful for this knowledge and hope that all seniors can receive the same information!”
