Next Meeting: Tuesday, May 22, 2018 Topic: “Information Security in Social Media”

This month’s guest speaker will be Jennifer Kraus, Senior Solution Consultant at Bit-Wizards in Fort Walton Beach. Her topic will be “Information Security in Social Media.”

Kraus has been interested in technology since her time at Meigs Middle School. She taught herself how to write HTML and CSS code. Then she began building websites for fun and did more work with code while at Choctawhatchee High School. During college, she decided to pursue a degree at the University of West Florida in Information Technology, focusing on Networking and Telecommunication Technologies.

Now she helps bring Bit-Wizards Managed IT Services to local businesses along the Emerald Coast. A big part of her job is helping educate the community about the good side of technology, as well as the scary side. Jennifer is married with two toddlers and a number of dogs. She loves to talk about computers and her family.
