Cybersecurity Workshop 1: Privacy (2.5 hr)


Privacy Protection Workshop Banner


Digital technology tracks and records everything. Data is a valuable commodity and, as users, we produce a lot of data that is constantly being analyzed. With the growth of online communication, our lives are becoming more and more public. Despite these things not explicitly appearing risky at first, a simple review of a lifetime’s worth of data collected from just one individual can be more revealing thank you’d think. Marketing companies watch everything we do online in order to build a profile of who we are, what we like, and what we are willing to buy. But it is not just marketing that can infringe on our privacy; state governments also have an interest in our activities. Managing one’s online reputation is a necessity in today’s world. Our past online behaviour can even make or break it when it comes to college entries and employment opportunities.

This workshop, designed for adults and teens of 13 years and older, covers a wide range of privacy-related topics and protection methods. As a workshop session, training components are utilized where participants are encouraged to bring their own technology (laptop, phone, and/or tablet) as they will be shown step-by-step instructions on how to implement privacy protection tools without completely restricting the freedom of access to which we have all become so accustomed.

Capacity per session is limited in order to provide the most efficient teaching environment. Wi-Fi access will be provided. Participants will each have table space to work comfortably, use their devices, and take notes. Feel free to bring a water bottle as coffee or other beverages are permitted.
