    Very educational. Scared now of ransomware and hacking! He was great, although there was an echo on my video player for him. Paying the Family Caregiver seemed more of a political statement than an informative session. The speaker on teacher/student relations needs to work on her "ummms" but otherwise informative.

    good.
