Tech Savvy Seniors – Managing Your Digital Assets

Course Overview

Do you want to learn how to manage your Digital Assets? A digital asset is any information about you, or belongs to you, that’s stored on a phone, computer or online. If you use a phone, tablet, laptop or computer, then chances are you are leaving your digital assets all over the internet and across your own devices.

Digital assets are important and potentially very valuable as they contain personal data about you. It includes your passwords, online accounts, memberships, digital files and photos stored on the cloud and more.

The course is for you if you have a smartphone or tablet and can protect you if have any digital passwords, have an email account, have a social media presence, have photos on your phone or backed up elsewhere or if you pay a monthly or annual fee for any technology or technology service.

Completing this course will provide you the know-how to keep your digital assets secure and to minimise the chance they’ll be stolen or misused.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across Northern and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Epping, Mt Druitt, Richmond, and Ryde. Enrol now!
