We’ve heard more about personal cybersecurity over the past several months than in the previous 20 years. (May we never hear the words “private email server” again.) You may not be high on Putin's to-hack list, but there are still good reasons to protect yourself online, and there is no better place to start than a Future Tense happy hour.

We invite you to bring your devices and join us for drinks and demos on Thursday, Feb. 16, in Washington, D.C., for a Cybersecurity Self-Defense class as part of our February installment of Futurography—Future Tense’s monthly online course offering monthly breakdowns of science and tech topics. Our experts will teach you how to use a virtual private network, cover your digital tracks, use secure communications platforms, and more.

Can’t join us for the event? Follow us at @FutureTenseNow and check out the Futurography course for helpful tips the entire month of February.

Future Tense is a partnership of Slate , New America , and Arizona State University.
