- How to Make a PiHole
This will be an online event. The meeting link will be sent to those who RSVP for this meeting. Are you sick of seeing so many ads on web pages while you surf the internet at home? Worry about malware coming into your home network? Using a PiHole can eliminate a lot of that traffic. A PiHole is built with a Raspberry Pi, a small and inexpensive computer that you can buy from multiple sources for $40 or less. Dan and Dan will walk us through how to build one, install it on our network and talk about the advantages of using one to block unwanted traffic. If you want to follow along, we recommend that you purchase a Raspberry Pi in advance of this meeting as they will not be provided for you. :) This meeting is in partnership with the Tech Collective in Providence, RI.

- Anonymity: The Cost of Free
Anonymity: The Cost of Free As our digital footprint grows, we find more and more “free” services offered to us. Games that are free to play, social networks that are free to participate and news that is free to consume. These “free” services are from some of the most profitable organizations. The profit comes from monetizing our personal information. In this session we will talk about the value of your personal information and how you can decide who knows what about you. About the Speaker: Manuel Lobao (Manny) is the Senior Manager of Information Security for Carousel Industries. He has worked in the technology field for over 25-years. His focus is on all thing’s security from Red and Blue teaming, Social and Reverse Engineering to Analytics. One thing remains the same, the passion to learn and share with the community.
