Safeguard Your Digital Life

Event Type: All Ages
Date: 4/28/2016
Start Time: 6:30 PM
End Time: 8:00 PM
Description:
 In an age where so much of our lives are spent online, where we share increasing amounts of personal information with software providers in exchange for services, itís starting to feel like our privacy is being eradicated. Some of us are uneasy about the influence of huge online corporations like Google and Facebook, and their access to and influence on our lives. Others are concerned about overbroad government surveillance revealed by Edward Snowden and other whistleblowers. Still more of us are concerned merely by how much of our information is discoverable by hackers who might seek to exploit us. Indeed, our online privacy is being compromised, but the good news is that there are technology tools to help us fight back. Alison Macrina, a librarian and privacy rights activist, will present an online privacy toolkit that offers some basic solutions to help subvert digital spying. These tools address things like search tracking, encryption, password protection, secure deletion of temporary files, secure browsing, online anonymity, and more. Alison is the founder of the Library Freedom Project, a partnership among librarians, technologists, and privacy rights experts that aims to make real the promises of intellectual freedom and privacy in libraries.
