So you just got a new Mac and are excited to 

start using it. Macs have a reputation for being 

easy to use and secure, so why not dive right in?


Well... STOP! The truth is no computer system, 

including your shiny new Mac, is immune from 

attack. While there are no true viruses for OS X, 

that doesn't mean Macs are impenetrable. They're 

still vulnerable to malware, spyware, spam, 

trojans and user error.


PMUG's Khurt Williams will show how with just a 

few precautionary measures, your new (or old) Mac 

can be more secure than most any other consumer 

technology out there and stay as safe as possible.
