This Month’s Subject: New types of Storage and Authentication

  • JOHN STEDDIN OF NORTHBAY COMPUTER SYSTEMS will regale us with news about new types of storage during the June 26 General Meeting.For many computer users, “storage” has meant the hard drive that came with their computer. He’ll discuss alternatives:
  • Part 2 of John’s presentation will be new types of authentication. Two-factor authentication and third-party authenticators are two important trends. With all the data breaches in the news many companies are saying a password is not enough—you will need a second factor to prove who you are to log in.
  • Some websites also are subcontracting out the authentication, such as log into Google or Facebook, and your credentials are bounced back to the requesting website.
  • NorthBay Computer operates a full-service computer shop in San Rafael.

  • Tuesday, June 26, 2017, 2:00 PM

The GGCS, in conjunction with the San Rafael Public Library’s TechZone, will present a SIG in which users with iPads will learn to develop Keynote presentations so that they can display whatever they choose: photos, mementos, vacation travel, hobbies or family events.

We will be using the library’s subscription to Lynda.com, an online technology learning tool. During the session attendees will create professional looking presentations on a TechZone iMac which they can then copy to a flash drive and download to their own iPad.
