Ridgeline Computer Solutions, LLC of Somerset has seen an increase in computer scams and community members having their personal information compromised including banking information. In response, Ridgeline is partnering with the Somerset Borough Police Department, local businesses and organizations to offer a free Internet Safety presentation to protect the community.
The presentation is scheduled for Tuesday, August 29, 2023 at the Somerset Event Center beginning at 6:30 pm. The presentation will not only educate the public about how to protect themselves, but also discuss common scams, attack methods and steps that attendees can take if they suspect that their computers, devices or data has been compromised.
Ridgeline CEO Bo Lottig is a long time IT professional and Somerset resident. Based on the increase number of local residents having their information and data compromised he knew that it was time to act. Lottig went on to say “It was clear that Ridgeline had to take a leadership position in protecting the community and educating residents about good Internet safety practices. Our Ridgeline team has seen local community members and businesses having their email accounts, banking information compromised and spyware installed on their computers by hackers– especially our senior citizens. I am grateful to our local community members who also see the value in protecting our community and who have been supporting us every step of the way.”
