The United Nations Association-USA Hawaii Island Chapter, in collaboration with University of Hawaii at Hilo International Student Services, presents at a talk by Shawon Rahman, an associate professor of computer science and engineering at UH-Hilo, at 5 p.m. Jan. 18 on campus.

Rahman’s presentation is related to U.N. Global Goal No. 9, Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure, and will take place in the Student Services Center, Room W-201, at UH-Hilo.

Rahman will discuss how to detect, avoid and get rid of malware (including viruses, spyware and other unwanted software) on your computer and mobile devices.
